Audrey Irmas Pavilion by L'Observatoire International
Jason O'Rear

L'Observatoire International has amplified the urban presence of the Wilshire Boulevard Temple, while retaining a welcoming atmosphere for the community.


Sitting adjacent to the Wilshire Boulevard Temple in the centre of Los Angeles, the Audrey Irmas Pavilion shapes a new presence for a busy city corner and frames the entry to the Temple complex.

L’Observatoire International worked with OMA and Gruen Associates to amplify the urban presence of the building, while retaining a welcoming atmosphere for the community.

The exterior is illuminated in a soft wash of light, shaping the building as a monolithic whole. It elevates the striking identity of the building, heightening the detailed materiality of its hexagonal facade panels, while underscoring the minimalism of the architecture as a whole. Inside, a consistent and unifying system of diffuse and accent lighting runs throughout to maintain a cohesive overall scheme of illumination as its projects outward to the city.


This project has been longlisted in the architectural lighting design category of Dezeen Awards 2022.
