Louis Vuitton

Santa Monica Place
Santa Monica, CA

Schnackel Engineers were chosen by the LVMH Group to provide the MEP Engineering services for the design of the Louis Vuitton’s Santa Monica Place location in Santa Monica, CA. Already in a LEED Certified mall, the location was chosen by LVMH as to feature the first Louis Vuitton to pursue LEED Certification of any kind. One of the challenges that was faced by our team was the extensive building envelope study that was required in order to comply with Louis Vuitton’s visions of their project, while keeping the strict landlord requirements in mind as well. From a sustainability standpoint, the store also utilized innovative lighting technology in order to reduce energy consumption through a new and unique type of ballast. Our experience as a LEED MEP consultant proved invaluable to this haute-couture retailer, and Schnackel’s attention to the aesthetic implications of MEP systems design once again delivered high-end results.
