Each December, BAM hosts a holiday party for our team members to celebrate the past year with delicious food, good company, a Secret Santa, and a few reindeer games. Though the distance between the New York and Los Angeles offices mean separate celebrations, the office always comes together before the New York holiday party for the BAM toast. BAM LA may be seen on the monitor in the background of the BAM company photo.
Led by the company principals, the BAM toast recounts office achievements of the previous year of new clients, exciting projects with current clients, and hallmark moments of the team. This year, the BAM toast focused on the three important tenets of BAM: do great work, own your fire, and treat people fairly.
Thank you to everyone at BAM for sharing your design creativity, your passion for projects, and your collaboration to do truly great work.
We also extend our gratitude to our clients for your partnership and innovative design opportunities to support you now and for the future.
Wishing everyone all the best in 2018!

LA Business Journal features a BAM designed project, HATCH, as front page news for its unique adaptive reuse approach to support a burgeoning biotech neighborhood.
BAM’s landmark project has also caught the attention of respected industry organizations, such as the Los Angeles chapter of the Urban Land Institute. As one of the key sites on the sold-out ULI Fall Meeting tour Adaptive Use: Obsolete Industrial to New Economy, HATCH is a prime example of how revitalizing spaces bring new life and industry to a community.
In addition to the Fall Meeting, ULI’s magazine Urbanland highlights the influence of HATCH in the article Building a Bioscience Cluster in East Los Angeles. Co-written by Fiona Lyons of Agora Partners and Tulsi Patel of ELP Advisors and LA Bioscience Hub, the article delves into how HATCH is fostering a local culture of life sciences.
Agora Partners and ASG Real Estate engaged BAM to lead the adaptive reuse of an old line industrial property into the state-of-the-art HATCH Bioscience Facility. Our team is giving special consideration to the market repositioning of the property, combining the varied elements of renovation, ground-up work and technical conversion of the factory and warehouse into a practical and visually exciting space to attract leading scientists and researchers. Currently in progress, HATCH has been highlighted in the news and throughout A/E/C and biotech circles for its community-focused goal of providing the resources for biotech startups to hatch and grow in Los Angeles.
