Project:United Talent Agency
Location:Beverly Hills, CA
Area:115,000 square feet
The former Beverly Hills headquarters of Hilton Hotels was completely gutted and redesigned in a minimal and crisp aesthetic for the offices of United Talent Agency as well as a 150-seat two-level screening room consisting of isolated slab, concrete curb, structural steel bracing, doubleleaf sound doors, acoustic fabric panels and cutting-edge audio-visual technology. The 115,000-square-foot, five-floor buildout features luxury details in lacquered millwork elements and sophisticated lighting and was completed in five months. Tactful coordination was necessitated because of the simultaneous buildout within an adjacent building. Adaptability was required as design elements were reworked. And problem-solving was employed in the reworking of existing conditions to achieve the ceiling heights specified by the design team.
