ARCHITECT: Robert Ricciardi
Originally the main field office for the Southern California Gas Company in the Coachella Valley, The Gas Company Building still contains a full conference room, a locker room with a shower, and executive offices. One special and important feature of the building is that it houses a fully functional test kitchen. The kitchen was used to demonstrate the use of natural gas in the home. This kitchen is completely untouched, still appearing as it was in the year of the building’s completion. The most striking feature is the highly unique and textural fluted concrete that defines the entire building.
