David Rockwell, American architect, designer and founder of Rockwell Group, has unveiled an all new co-working space for entrepreneurs and people in creative industries.
As you might expect, it’s no ordinary shared office. The project, which is called NeueHouse Hollywood is located in Los Angeles’s famous CBS Radio Building and Studio. Rockwell is no stranger to creating shared working spaces, having opened the first NeueHouse in New York in 2013.
One of the main highlights of the new seven-storey building is definitely the decor. White marble and silver-toned metal contrasts with raw materials throughout, and Moroccan rugs complement and echo the abstract geometry that is inherent in the architecture. Members also get a taste of what lies within from the moment they enter and walk through a courtyard that leads them to the white marble reception desk.
Inside, different work environments cater to varying needs, including a gallery with lounge seating and rows of oak library tables and several conference rooms, each individually designed. Another highlight once inside the building is its third floor outdoor terrace, complete with lounge areas, private cabanas, a covered conference room and refreshment table.
The building also offers views of the Hollywood Hills and downtown LA. These are best viewed from the top floor’s Paley Penthouse, a spacious 18-seater boardroom that features pillowed plaster walls, wood plank floors, Bauhaus-inspired furniture and a private roof deck.
