We began working with Green Dot in 2003, with the Master Planning of the Oscar De La Hoya boxing gym site on Lorena Street in Boyle Heights. This effort was part of a long-term 4-phased plan for a growing Green Dot student population that would eventually be housed in the new Oscar De La Hoya Animo Charter High School. TFO provided planning and design services for all phases of this Green Dot growth period.

Phase 1 was the conversion of the ODLH site to educational usage through a CUP, and the subsequent construction of 6 portable classrooms to serve 140 students. Phase 2 developed a second site in Whittier and added 12 portable classrooms and an administration building to accommodate the growing student population. Phase 3 provided still more student housing in the World Trade Center building in Downtown Los Angeles, and TFO provided tenant improvement designs for this phase as well. Phase 4 was the re-development of the original site on Lorena Street.

The new school completed in 2009 provides administration and the boxing gym on the ground floor along with on- site parking; classrooms and a basketball court on the 2nd and 3rd floor and a roof top recreation and eating area.

This DSA approved project was funded through the state under proposition 55. The charter school movement is generating schools that are smaller, more "urban" in design, and more closely linked with their neighborhoods. This 71,000 sf program is located on a restricted 36,000 sf site and has 40 parking spaces on grade. Sun control for the Western facing classrooms was also a primary design issue.
