Michael Maltzan Architecture @michaelmaltzanarchitecture

is an architecture and urban design practice based in Los Angeles.

Currently in design, the new Luxe Lakes Hotel and Welcome Center form the core of an innovative cultural district within a new planned community in Chengdu, China. The two buildings are located side-by-side and are designed as unique architectural landmarks and signature destinations for visitors. The Welcome Center (6,100 square meters) is the entry point that greets visitors arriving by car, boat, or water taxi. Its exterior and interior organization weave together multiple circulation paths, serving to orient and connect the visitors to the many features of the building and the site. The adjacent Hotel’s architecture (3,100 square meters) creates sweeping views of the surrounding landscape. The building’s distinctive curving shape ensures that all the guest rooms have unimpeded lake views, while sheltering several intimate public spaces that enhance the character of the hotel. The project began with a Master Plan for the entire Waterfront Village that in addition to the Hotel and Welcome Center includes a Design Center, Lifestyle Store, Retail Pavilions, and Creative Street.

Michael Maltzan Architecture is the proud recipient of an an Honor Award from the AIA-LA! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
CHICAGO LIBRARY + HOUSING COMPETITION
The project is an amalgam of affordable housing and public library space in northwestern Chicago. The housing and library elements work in tandem to embrace the site’s unique qualities, adding density while providing a vibrant identity for the library and high-quality homes for residents. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
The library stretches across the ground level, creating a multitude of experiences for visitors and residents arriving from all directions. Housing blocks on the upper levels above the second level parking mediate the intimate scale of nearby single-family homes and commercial zones by breaking the blocks of apartments into a series of bands that recall the scale and proportion of the neighboring residential parcels.

5th and Brannan is one step closer to becoming a reality after obtaining San Francisco's approval on June 6th!
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
The plans for the 4.5-acre site will yield three new commercial buildings with a new 40,000-square-foot public park in the middle of the development. The three new buildings will produce a combined 923,000 square feet of new office space, 60,000 square feet of ground-floor retail / Production Distribution and Repair (PDR) space, a 5,500-square-foot child care center, basement garages for 200 cars and 515 bikes, and landscaped terrace spaces.

At the heart of a new urban center in China’s rapidly developing Sichuan Province, the Ju Gong Bridge and Waterfront Park form a vital link at the core of a 565-acre development. At the center of an extensive network of lakes and rivers that define the organization and identity of the development, the project is an icon for infrastructure and connection within the community that seamlessly integrates architecture, infrastructure and landscape.
