Depending on the office, some spaces can be tedious and stifling, but not this one! The designated LA cultural monument designed by A. Quincy Jones and Frederick Emmons is knitted with personality. The timeless building reflects creativity, inspiration, and domesticity. Find out some of our team members’ favorite areas in the office.
One designer expressed her gratitude for the Ray Q. Galano Memorial Garden. “How many places can one work while hearing the ambient sound of gurgling water? The sound of the fountain while we design feels luxurious.” While another colleague suggests her favorite aspects are the big double height windows in the main studio combined with the natural lighting and attractive visual of the plants in the courtyard. On a cool day we take full advantage of the windows by soaking up the sun.
Whether it’s the secret closet, the study, the garden on the roof deck, or the Japanese influenced courtyard each room has a different feeling, identity, and serves a different purpose, but together they create an office that feels domestic, bright, and open. The inspiration and legacy to design timeless, historical, and authentic buildings will be carried on.
