Leong Leong and Killefer Flammang Architects worked together to design the Los Angeles LGBT Center’s newly opened Anita May Rosenstein Campus, which spans nearly a city block in the heart of Hollywood.
The new site – located on N. McCadden Place and Santa Monica Boulevard – is a new typology for community urban development that includes diverse social and affordable housing programs. The porous, pedestrian-oriented urban Campus features a public plaza and a series of courtyards that unify various social services as well as cultural and institutional programs, all located directly across the street from another Center facility, The Village at Ed Gould Plaza.
Celebrating its 50th anniversary in 2019, the Center currently serves more LGBT people than any other organization in the world, welcoming more than 42,000 client visits each month. The new Campus enables a dramatic expansion of the Center’s intergenerational services, including 100 beds for homeless youth, the state-of-the-art Harry & Jeannette Weinberg Senior Center, Youth Center, and the Ariadne Getty Foundation Youth Academy.
