Entertainment Company Headquarters
For their new six-story headquarters in Los Angeles, this entertainment company enlisted Rapt Studio to bring the energy of live events to the center stage of their new workplace.
The sweeping ground-floor lobby is designed for all kinds of entertaining and hosting, and it's capped by five floors of workspace where teams meet, gather, and innovate.
Zoom has become an indispensable part of modern daily life, but one type of experience it can’t translate to screens is live entertainment. There’s something about the immediacy and palpability of in-the-flesh events that the virtual world just can’t reproduce.
And it just so happens that a leading entertainment company making thousands of concerts, shows, and sports games possible is convinced that work — just like an in-person event — is better in real life.
A stunning bronze bar welcomes guests and employees inside. At fifty-five feet in length, it wraps the central building core in a flash of stellar showmanship.
If you’re a guest visiting for a function, you’ll be handed a coffee or a cocktail upon arrival, depending on the time of day. You’ll pull up a seat and take in the surroundings, which look more like an upscale hotel than any office you’ve seen. You’ll step further into the lobby, sinking into plush lounge seating. If the temperature is mild — which it’s nearly guaranteed to be — the sun will coax you outside, where you’ll find an abundance of outdoor seating on a patio privately ensconced by tall greenery.
To get a better view of the action, you might cross the lobby and find a free spot on the stadium seating that spills onto the ground floor and gives a wide-angle view of the space. From your perch you’ll hear a popular music artist who’s been invited to perform.
Lights, Camera, Action
If it’s a weekday and you’re an employee, you’ll ascend to the floor where your desk sits, lined by meeting spaces, phone rooms, and huddle pods. Book one of those and the sign outside the door lights up, indicating action.
When the need for solitary time strikes, you can slip away to The Library, where you can focus without interruption.
The boardroom on floor six provides a “wow factor” moment. Featuring a custom marble table and custom lighting, it frames an iconic LA view. Richer materials and deeper hues offer a tonal contrast from the workspaces that are bright and airy.
At this headquarters, employees and visitors alike are treated to the experience of being guests, where the workplace itself plays the role of generous host.
For a company that believes nothing beats the real live thing, this headquarters ensures that work, life, and special events get the spotlight they deserve.
