The unique renovation and repurposing of a historic Beverly Hills landmark

Annenberg Center

The Wallis Annenberg Center for the Performing Arts (The Wallis) opened to much fanfare in Beverly Hills this October, and represents a unique partnership between a non-profit and the City of Beverly Hills whose determination and focus made possible the renovation and repurposing of a historic landmark. Designed by architect, Zoltan Pali, FAIA, The Wallis converts its historic site into a vibrant new cultural destination with two distinct, elegant buildings: the historic 1933 Italianate-style Beverly Hills Post Office and the new, contemporary 500-seat, state-of-the-art Goldsmith Theater.  Following the architect’s lead, MATT Construction meticulously restored the historic building, limiting its internal programs to retail, exhibit, and workshop space, and constructed the new building that houses the center’s main performance activities.  The building provides a new visual landmark from Santa Monica Boulevard, Crescent Drive, and Canon Drive, representing entry into the Beverly Hills shopping district from the North.

The program will include continental breakfast, a brief presentation by the architect and owner, and a tour of the center, led by the architect and construction project manager.
