The transformation of Downtown Los Angeles has yet to see a slow-down and continues to see landmark buildings being revived and gain a new purpose. The latest redevelopment which has made headlines in design-conscious circles across the planet is the that has made the iconic Bradbury Building the newest outpost of private workspace collective NeueHouse. The five-story listed structure, built in 1893 after a design by American architect Sumner Hunt, is known for its voluminous atrium, walkways, stairs, balconies, and last but not least, intricate ironwork. Following openings in New York City and West Hollywood, this second venue in the Los Angeles area is aptly called NeueHouse Bradbury, and sees an interior design by Canadian practice DesignAgency. The workspace occupies the entire 25,000 sq.ft. (2,323 sqm.) second floor of the building and sees a variety of members-only private spaces for work, meetings, events and cross-community collaborations. Creative companies have a selection of dedicated private studios and atelier desks, alongside NeueHouse’s communal gallery seating. Member amenities also include common areas with a morning-to-night café and bar, a wellness room, custom-designed phone booths, meeting rooms, and a private dining room. Being an incubator of ideas and collaborations, NeueHouse Bradbury collaborates with local galleries to stage rotating art installations curated by art consultant Donna Chu and Meredith Rogers, vice-president of Cultural Programming at NeueHouse. Mind you, the premises are also adorned with stills by Stephen Vaughn of Ridley Scott‘s iconic Blade Runner movie which was partially shot in the building.
