The Firm Beverly Hills, CA
This 14,000 square foot project was to transform an existing commercial interior space into the signature headquarters for a cutting edge artist management company. Located on the 4th floor of a Beverly Hills high-rise, the program includes executive suites for the principals of the company, offices for other members of the executive team, assistants, and support staff, two conference rooms, a kitchen and lounge area, reception and miscellaneous service rooms. The clients for this project needed to occupy a finished space within sixteen weeks from the beginning of the design process. This allowed for a very limited incubation period in which ideas had to be generated and realized. To meet this demand, a systematic working strategy that capitalized on the extreme constraints of the project and a team approach was adopted. Client, contractor and architect collaborated with an unprecedented synergism. Ultimately, the architecture emerged from the inventive and dynamic atmosphere that was cultivated in response to the particular conditions of the project.
