Painter, muralist and watercolorist Richard Haines made a name for himself as a major muralist in the Works Progress Administration. After coming to California to work for Douglas Aircraft during World War II, Haines went on to become a painting instructor at Chouinard and then at Otis Art Institute. His distinctively Modernist vision proved pivotal in mid-century Los Angeles, where he lived and worked until his death. Sullivan Goss is pleased to present the estate of the artist. Below are the titles for his work located in this facility:
- Of the people, by the people, for the people
- Celebration of Our Homeland
- Recognition of All Foreign Lands
History and Architecture
300 North Los Angeles Federal Building is on the National Register of Historic Places. The building forms a single cubic mass, eighteen bays wide by eight bays deep. The perimeter columns are clad in marble panels that extend the full height of the building, delineating the structural bays. A band of marble continues around the roofline to form a simple cornice. The walls of the first, second, and eighth stories are primarily of metal-framed glazed storefront and are set back from the column line, creating a perimeter colonnade around the base of the building and a covered loggia around the top, each with textured plaster soffits and recessed metal can lights. Solid wall panels at the first two
stories are veneered in mosaic tile. The third through seventh stories are wrapped with ribbon windows with staggered aluminum mullions, alternating with bands of precast polished aggregate spandrel panels.
The primary entrance is symmetrically located on the west façade and consists of a wide, T-shaped canopy projecting from the colonnade over the west terrace and entrance steps. The canopy is supported on square, marble-veneered columns and shelters an entrance pavilion with floor-to-ceiling walls of metal-framed glass. The entrance doors are fully glazed, metal-framed automatic sliding doors. The entrance pavilion is flanked by two mosaic murals, Celebration of our Homeland and Recognition of All Foreign Lands, designed by noted Los Angeles artist Richard Haines and executed by the Ravenna Mosaic Company.

Custodial Services: GSA provides cleaning for assigned space equal to commercial cleaning for similar space. The following services are standard: vacuuming, sweeping and dusting; emptying trash; servicing restrooms, lobbies, corridors, and other common areas; servicing loading docks and platforms; and pest control. Carpet spot removal can be done on an as-needed basis. Overall shampooing is done as a reimbursable service and should take place on a regular basis to preserve the appearance and condition of the carpet.
Lighting/HVAC: Ten hours of heating, ventilation, air conditioning, and lighting are provided at no additional cost during normal duty hours. Additional service outside this timeframe is available on a reimbursable basis with advanced notice to the GSA Property Management Office at (213) 894-3742.
Utility Closets: Tenant and tenant vendor access to electrical and telephone closets can be obtained by contacting the GSA Property Management Office at (213) 894-3742. Please do not install equipment in these closets without first contacting the GSA Property Management Office.
Tenant Controlled Space Alteration: Space alterations should not be performed without first contacting the GSA Property Manager. GSA can provide alteration solutions to meet your needs. Alteration projects are normally funded through a Reimbursable Work Authorization (RWA). Also, it is building policy that work that might disrupt building tenants (e.g. paint fumes, construction noise, etc.) be accomplished after standard building operating hours.
Occupant Emergency Plan: As the lead tenant in this building, U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services is responsible for creating and updating the Occupant Emergency Plan. Please take time to become familiar with it, and participate in Building Security Committee meetings.
Displays: Please do not post or display any material outside tenant space without first contacting the GSA Property Management Office at (213) 894-3742.
Personal Property: Please do not put surplus items in building common space (i.e., corridors, elevators, loading dock, etc.). Doing so may impede egress should the building need to be evacuated. GSA will be glad to advise you about excessing surplus property.
Loading Docks: The loading dock is open from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. Scheduling the use of the loading dock for deliveries, moves, etc., can be arranged through the GSA Property Management Office at (213) 894-3742. A guard must be present at all times while basement doors are open, so it is imperative that the GSA or on-site maintenance contractor be informed at least 24 hours advance to make these arrangements.
Recycling: Tenants are encouraged to take advantage of the building-wide recycling program, which includes paper and cardboard. Any questions regarding recycling, please contact the GSA Property Management Office at (213) 894-3742.
