Architect: Rios Clementi Hale Studios
The Hollywood Bowl is owned by the National Parks Service. They decided to only upgrade the restrooms, 14 total, during the off season, mandating non-negotiable deadlines for design completion, client approval, fixture delivery and installation. The architectural concepts reflect the 1920’s of black and white, high contrast. The black stripes move from wall to ceiling in large sweeping arcs. The modern twists are the purple light fixtures and the green floors.
With only restrooms being addressed in this renovation, Title-24 allowance was 0.6 w/ft. A major design challenge was to achieve IES standard of Practise light levels within this energy budget. Some bathrooms were completely renovated while others were partially upgraded. In this restroom the existing perimeter fluorescent downlights were cleaned, relamped, repaired. The egg-crate louvers were replaced with white acrylic continuous lenses.
