The Petersen Automotive Museum

< | >

House & Robertson’s reimagining of the Petersen Automotive Museum focused on turning the building into the centerpiece of Museum Row on Los Angeles’ Miracle Mile. After completing new offices for the museum management to make way for the renovation, HRA acted as executive architects for the distinctive new stainless steel ribbon façade cladding, and upgrades to the entry and public areas designed by KPF in New York City. HRA also collaborated with the exhibit designers to develop the new interactive and flexible exhibit areas, and worked closely with the museum to maximize the experience for museum visitors and guests at the many events which are integral to the Petersen’s ongoing mission. The project was completed in 2015 and received a 2017 American Architecture Award from the Chicago Athenaeum, the 2017 Renovated Building Award from the Los Angeles Business Council, and the 2017 Los Angeles Business Journal Commercial Real Estate Award for Best Redevelopment Project.
