Our building's history is ripe with the lore, tradition and curiosity that makes its home in the Hollywood area of Los Angeles a place of intrigue and wonder and a place we have always cherished. Originally built in 1926 as a Prop Design Studio for film and television, the Spanish Colonial style building has an heir of both elegance and comfort daftly mimicking its current owner’s temperament and style. Following that storied use of the building and for the next twenty-five years, the building was a violin factory producing thousands of violins and violas for schools throughout the country. In 1967, some fifty years ago, Costume Designer Rita Riggs purchased the building and made it her studio for her work with everyone from Alfred Hitchcock to Norman Lear and many, many more in between. Rita predated the current interest in Shared Community Office space by offering space to a select group of design professionals that understood her passion and talent for high design and an interest in making a true community out of the workplace. Organically, gracefully and with no pretense, Rita was way ahead of her time. Recently, the building was painstakingly restored to its former glory by 30 year inhabitants of this very special place. They, along with the entire building's membership (including Rita herself), welcome you to share, learn, grow and thrive in a community made up of all generations intent on rising in the pursuit of what promises be a very fulfilled and prosperous family.
No smoking is permitted in the building.
This space is beautiful and the host was so accommodating and helpful. She allowed us to use any room we needed and was available with any questions we had throughout the day. Remember to bring your own cups, plates, and utensils so you won't be charged a fee at the venue. Anyway, thanks to this host, we so appreciate her!
We had a great experience with Tash and this space! We needed a meeting space to prepare for a pitch and this was the perfect space for it. Sara and Scott were our on-site contacts who were so sweet and helpful to meet any of our requests. Overall, it was a great resource to have and we definitely plan on returning and highly recommend to those in need of a meeting space!
Sara took amazing care of us - she was thoughtful in how she set up the venue for our needs, recommended amazing catering, was super communicative, and just generally easy to work with. We had excellent feedback on the location - I would book again!
I hosted my Q1 Executive Team working offsite here on March 23. We rented out the entire bottom floor. It was a great venue with a variety of seating options, discussion spaces, and amenities. It was extremely easy to work with Tash remotely (I am based on SF), and Jenny was a very helpful point person on site the day of our event. I would highly recommend this space as a unique offsite venue for business groups!
The space is beautiful. Access to fridge and able to move furniture around to your liking. Back access to unload. Parking isn’t the greatest but besides that great venue.
Great looking space with very accommodating hosts and lots of flexibility in its use. The hosts were able to provide extra seating and tables that we used for a memorial service. Couldn't have asked for a better experience!
