Situated in a cul-de-sac in the center of Culver City, along the Jefferson corridor that is only minutes away from the Central Business District and fantastic local parks, the Leahy building is a warm, embracing space that still maintains an airy, light feel. From its beginnings as an industrial warehouse, the building underwent metamorphosis to become a multipurpose office facility with rare touches.
In the midst of a gritty semi-industrial park, the structure is creative office at its best. The building layout is intuitive, creating a great energy conducive to creative needs. Its entrance features a beautiful 10-foot high copper door. Inside, parallel wooden beams of the exposed ceiling overhead provide a comforting structure, evoking organic forms and acoustics.
Several areas within the 8,000 square foot space function as nooks and set-apart areas. Among these is a fully built out mezzanine, with an executive office and conference room overlooking the space below, which is framed by large geometric windows bringing in natural light. This is complemented by track lighting to brighten the beautiful space. A private shower amenity upstairs is as stylish as it is functional. A roll-up door water feature with water cascading from a glass enclosure adds a distinct meditative element.
Outside, the structure seamlessly transitions from red brick exterior to steel façade, punctuated every so often by wood and glass of dormer windows and entryways. Parking is ample, at over three per thousand, and the building is tastefully framed with a refreshing verdure of thirty-foot high bamboo. The entire building is fully wired for optimum connectivity. All in all, Leahy is a true standout of creative office space in the neighborhood.
