Creative Space in a New Light:
Tech Tenants Are Reshaping the Office Market
Today’s red-hot creative office market is changing an entire business culture. In the same way that org charts have become dramatically fluid, and employees wear multiple hats, office walls have literally come down to open up floor plans. The trend is expanding beyond tech and advertising firms to include banks, insurance firms, law firms. And Los Angeles’ Silicon Beach, Hayden Tract and Playa Vista districts are leading the way nationwide in rents and absorption and well as design templates.
- Michael White, Principal, Gensler – will discuss the “hackable” building –designers transforming underused traditional office space into workplaces highly desirable to tech and creative tenants. How a physical office supports mobility of workforce. Important issues such as parking, building identity, communal areas.
- Jonathan Watts, Principal, Cuningham Group – will cover the process his team underwent to rehab an old building in the Hayden Tract into new offices. How to create sustainable energy systems, and an environment that encourages productivity and playfulness.
- Thomas W. Wulf, Senior Vice President, Lowe Enterprises – will preview the significant Washington & National TOD project along the new Expo Rail which includes a sizable creative-space commercial component.
Setting: the new creative offices of Cuningham Group architecture, the Hayden Tract. 8665 Hayden Place Culver City, CA 90232. The location itself is a living representation of the newest creative space approaches.
