The client is a Los Angeles-based firm with global business
and investment interests.
The company name is a portmanteau of the two principal
owners, using the first portions of each of their names.
Located in a prestigious building in Beverly Hills, the offices
are designed to reflect both the character of the Owners as
well as provide a quiet, efficient workplace. The Owner’s
love for minimalist architecture drove the design to be built
around a minimal color palette straight-grained woods,
fritted glass and white drywall; simple yet sophisticated
detailing; and a very straightforward plan.
The design of the space is organized around a central “living
room” space wrapped by a fritted glass box. Bookshelves,
furnishings, and all other elements “float” inside this glass
box. Base building structure inside the box was stripped to
raw steel and painted with a fireproof paint in a soft
lavender color – the only “real” color in the space other than
the art. The box is held top and bottom by a soft grey carpet
and a wood ceiling that extends through the space
connecting all the areas visually.
Principal’s offices are organized at the smaller end off of the
Living Room and support staff occupies the opposite wing.
There is a circulation spine that connects these areas,
feeding into the collaborative activity space of the Living
Room. Other services such as reception, boardroom, a
pantry/lunchroom, and visitor’s offices are organized around
the sides of the Living Room.
