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 Anthropology and 100 year-old white and cream rugs direct from Istanbul which compliment our overall neutral palette. We’ve personally designed much of the loft’s furniture and gathered textiles, ceramics, and other one-of-a-kind objects from around the world. Our decor 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 in the air, it’s worth noting that the light is especially gorgeous, flooding into the space as early as 7am. Because I am an interior designer and my boyfriend 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 Caravana lounge, which is filled with low custom-made Moroccan cushions, a grand Balinese peacock chair, painted statement wall, and an array of unique decor, which your art department is welcome to use at no extra charge. 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 brand new 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.
