Curtain Window is a façade renovation of an historic building in Downtown Los Angeles. The original building, constructed in 1906, was designed in the Chicago School Beaux-Arts style, although this style is most apparent in the top five stories. The building previously rested on a style-less foot at the street and mezzanine levels that were originally open-air entrances to the manufacturing facility inside. Later this changed to a series of roll-up shutters. The LADG project addresses these first two levels with a new glass and aluminum system. It is the first time the building has had a public face at the street level.
