The space is just over 4000 square feet on two levels located in the heart of downtown Los Angeles. The top level has 16 foot cealings and the downstairs has 9.5 foot cealings. The space operates as an art gallery and a production studio but can be easily transformed into many things. The space is great for filming. The property is a corner lot with movable walls and can have the look of an art gallery, convenience store, bar, night club, retail space, coffee shop, or anything else the imagination can create. The top floor is flooded with natural light and makes for a fantastic photo studio as well. The owners and operators, artist Zach and Wendy, are very good hosts and accommodate as much as possible. A recent guest who shot a commercial here said "Zach and Wendy exceeded all of my expectations." Another guest who had a pop up art show recently said "I wish I could give the space 10 stars. It's even better in person than in the photos." There is a huge parking lot that could be negotiated to be used for trucks, gear, crew, trailer, etc. only 100 feet from the property. There are also two parking structures less that a block away and parking is free and plentiful after 6. The space is also perfect for corporate parties and events as well as meetings. A recent guest did a presentation for over 70 people downstairs. Other events we have had here are birthday parties, meet and greet parties, wedding receptions, corporate meetings and presentations, pop up art shows, world premiers for film, red carpet events, screenings, fashion shows, and others. It's just a great place to get people together and have fun.

Zach is everything you want in a host! He's responsive, helpful and accommodating. We had our wedding in Zach's beautiful space and got so many compliments on how everything looked!
The space was absolutely perfect for our surprise birthday party and he was an absolute gem to work with. Consider him a friend now after all of his hard work and dedication to making sure we were happy. Absolutely recommend this spot for birthdays events etc. and cannot wait to work with both Wendy and Zach again. Much Love, Bridget Dickey
This place is better in real in real life than in picture. I love the place and Zack was very kind and helpful . if I can give 10 stars I will and matter fact I will book this place again. I definitely recommend
Corporate event: Swarovski Product Launch / Attendees: 100 First impression was how good the space makes you feel. High ceilings, open space, large windows, tons of light and a downstairs 2nd floor with stage and kitchen. We chose to hold our launch event here because the large paintings had the mood we were looking. Pictures of space appear as advertised. Gallery has movable walls on first level to customize your set up. We set up 4 fashion vignettes and used the stunning art as background which pulled our looks together. We commissioned Zach to do a customized painting for our event as well. Must see pictures! Our event also included a trend presentation. The downstairs space has a mini stage and sound system which made set up easy for us. Extra perk was Zach dj-ing during event. Gallery is lightly furnished with benches, pedestals, midcentury modern coffee table and couch, etc. We also required catering and Zach recommended a professional catering company that served delicious and delectable food, specializing in visual presentation. Chef/owner is familiar with the space and supervised EVERY aspect of the catering, he takes care of everything! Zach is such a gracious host and enthusiastic about making your event a success. He’s goes above and beyond and offers resources. He doesn’t just rent you a space, he builds a relationship which creates a more memorable event experience and I think that’s what Peerspace is all about. Thank you, Zach! -Swarovski Sales West Team
Well where do i start, my name is Bokiso and i am a 20 year old starving artist who was looking for a platform for me and my artistic friends to display our art and Zach made that happen, my experience here was honeslty inspirational he was super helpful and flexible about everything. He looks for the best in people and tries his best to make your vision happen. For the price and size that its going for you would be crazy not to book this for your events.
Sorry I'm so late about posting this. But I just want to say that our people had a excellent experience at the DTLA Art Gallery and Photo Studio. Everything went very smoothly and we cannot say enough good things about Zach and his help in setting up our workshop with lunch which we held for our client. He was very patient and so helpful with me when I was trying to make all the arrangements. He even provided coffee & tea & soft drinks for the group. And my boss who I wasn't able to talk to about it until this morning said he was so happy with how everything turned out that he would like to rent that space again in the future if the opportunity comes up for a need to do something like this again.
