Located two miles from Venice beach, our sun-drenched, bi-level loft will inspire you everywhere you look. Designed specifically for film and photo production, the space boasts 25 foot ceilings, polished concrete floors, and fantastic natural light all day long thanks to our many southeast facing windows. We have two painted statement walls by talent from Anthropologie and have just re-curated our space and added a gorgeous new assortment of custom-made furniture for summer, elevating our overall neutral palette. We’ve personally designed much of the loft’s decor and gathered textiles, ceramics, and other one-of-a-kind objects from around the world. Our aesthetic is a delicate balance of whimsy and bohemian modernity and many of our guests remark that shooting here is like living in the clouds. How our space looks isn’t the only thing that’s important to us. We are particularly mindful of the atmosphere in our loft, and elevate the vitality of the space with over thirty happy, healthy plants, sustainably sourced sacred woods, and beautiful crystals. With summer upon us, it’s worth noting that the light is especially gorgeous, flooding into the space as early as 6:30am. We also have amazing central air conditioning and upgraded air filters. Because I am an interior designer and my fiancee' is a TV and commercial director, we understand the rigors of film production, and have designed the loft with that in mind. The main downstairs area is a spacious open layout with a raw edge Calcutta gold marble table that can be easily moved to make additional space for complex camera and lighting setups. The master bedroom is a favorite for photo shoots and gets fantastic natural light throughout the day. The bedroom connects to our large master bathroom, which is unusually large and contains an oversized bathtub. The bathroom is great for shooting and can also be used as a makeup and wardrobe changing area. Upstairs you’ll find the crown of the loft, our tropical Caravana lounge, which is filled with low custom-made Moroccan cushions and pillows, organic hemp and goats wool Turkish rugs, painted statement walls, a dreamy palm tree, and our new majestic eight foot floor mirror custom built from wood beams of an ancient temple in Jakarta. With an array of unique decor, textures, and vignettes, the lounge upstairs is spectacular for creating content. You and your crew can enjoy your lunch break outside at our communal tables, and easily cater in food from numerous restaurants here in the Venice/Mar Vista area. *White peacock chair available upon request for a fee, please inquire.* We also own a Red Raven camera package that can be rented for a discounted price when booking the space. For a complete westside visual experience, pair a day at our loft with a quick trip to the beach to shoot at our luxury set in the sand, which you can view at the end of our gallery. Feel free to also ask us about discounted loft/beach combo shooting rates.

Booked for a photo shoot, it was a good fit for me. The space was smaller than expected, but cute and works well for a small group or crew.
Hannah M. booked a photoshoot for 3 people
This space is 10/10. This space doesn’t look like it’s pictures, it’s so much better. Pictures don’t do it justice and Caroline is the absolute sweetest and was very patient when my clients ran late and we had to bump our time a bit. 100% recommend this space, partially because it’s gorgeous and clean, and partially because the hosts are fantastic .

Absolutely beautiful space in such a safe location. Not only was the space exactly as it was presented, but the host was so informative, quick to respond, and so helpful. We enjoyed getting to create in this space and will be back. Also loved the kitty !

The space was as pictured, beautiful and neat! The hosts were great. Unfortunately, my client spilled on their rug and they were still so nice about the whole thing. We communicated and they still asked how the rest of the session went. Definitely recommend.
Mike P. booked a photo shoot for 2 people
Had a fantastic shoot here. The loft and style worked great for what we wanted. The location was easy to find and very clean inside. The host Micah was particularly accomodating and made the entire process so easy. Definitely would recommend this space and looking forward to coming back again myself.
