Magnolia Place, the new home of the Childrenís Bureau of Southern California, involved the adaptive reuse of an existing warehouse in inner-city Los Angeles. With design and landscape architect Rios Clementi Hale Studios, House & Robertson executed the conversion of the 47,000 square-foot tilt-up building into a true mixed-use facility, comprising offices for the Bureau; a community center/meeting room; an interior mall with tenant spaces for the Bureauís Community Partners; and a childrenís daycare center. An 8,000 square-foot playground and accessory building serving the daycare center were built on the adjoining lot.

The project, with construction manager Danny Kaye of Totum Consulting, was awarded a 2009 Project Achievement Award by the Southern California Chapter of the Construction Management Association of America.
