Otis College of Art & Design


Market Analysis, Financial Feasibility



Our team, while recently employed at Sasaki Associates, brought our interdisciplinary approach to the Los Angeles campus of Otis College of Art and Design. We assisted the College and its chosen architectural firm in honing it’s housing strategy by bringing a comprehensive view that included understanding on-campus student preferences, the competitive landscape of off-campus options, and the financial dimensions of contemplated housing schemes. We helped develop the strategy around Otis’ first ever on-campus housing investment resulting in the transformational student residence project of 200 beds (with a 300-seat auditorium and classroom space) which opened in August of 2016.
