Last January, the private coworking space NeueHouse welcomed its first wave of new members at the iconic Bradbury Building in Downtown Los Angeles.
The workspace and cultural home for creators expands to its second West Coast location in one of the oldest LA landmark, in this stunning 25,000 square foot ‘House’ joins NeueHouse’s flagship locations in Hollywood and Madison Square in New York.
Los Angeles and Toronto-based DesignAgency lead the design of the space, maintaining many of the original design elements. Occupying the second-floor of the building, NeueHouse Bradbury offers members creative private spaces for work, meetings, events and cross-community collaboration.
Creative companies have a selection of dedicated private studios and atelier desks, alongside NeueHouse’s renowned communal Gallery seating. Member amenities also include common areas with a morning-to-night cafe? & bar, a wellness room, custom-designed phone booths, meeting rooms, and a private dining room.
” NeueHouse Bradbury is our first collaboration with the internationally renowned DesignAgency – a team I have been long wanted to work with again. What Anwar Mekhayech and his team have designed and realized for us at Bradbury is truly incredible and a wonderful testament to the art of repurposing a historic, architectural gem for the future needs of the creative class.”
About The Building:
Constructed by junior draftsman George Wyman in 1893 from the original design by architect, Sumner Hunt, the Bradbury Building was considered a modern innovation for its time. An architectural landmark – and Los Angeles’ very first commercial building – the picturesque five-story structure is renowned for its ornate ironwork, sky-lit atrium of access walkways and bird-cage elevators. The unassuming fac?ade opens into an inspiring, sun-drenched atrium that invites wonder and curiosity. Still esteemed more than 100 years after its opening, it remains one of Los Angeles’ most iconic and unique treasures. Legend has it that Wyman sought the advice of his dead brother via a Ouija board, which subsequently spelt out: “Take the Bradbury Building, it will make you famous”.
