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.

What makes for a successful design of a life science facility?
The Urban Land Institute Los Angeles and the LA Bioscience Hub arranged a panel of experts to discuss the forces shaping architectural design of the fast paced, dynamic field of life science research. Brian Spence, founding principal at BAM Architecture Studio, served as the sole architectural voice on the panel.
Brian used a case study model to articulate how to take advantage of recent biotech design trends. He first identified the design trends. Then, he presented one real world design solution to the R&D community in LA’s flourishing BioScience Corridor.
