Upscale Coworking Company NeueHouse Moves Into L.A.’s Historic Bradbury Building

Upscale Coworking Company NeueHouse Moves Into L.A.’s Historic Bradbury Building

By Lauren Jones
Featured in films such as “Blade Runner” and “500 Days of Summer,” the Bradbury Building will host the latest outpost of the coworking company NeueHouse.

Built in 1893, the five-story Bradbury Building is one of Los Angeles’ most celebrated landmarks. Commissioned by gold mining baron Lewis L. Bradbury and designed by architect George Wyman, it’s famous for its light-filled atriums and intricate filigree iron details.

The Italian Renaissance Revival-style brick, sandstone, and terra-cotta office building also has quite the cinematic history—it can be seen in films such as Lethal Weapon 4, 500 Days of Summer, Blade Runner, and in music videos by Janet Jackson and Earth, Wind & Fire. As of November 2019, it will host the latest branch of NeueHouse, a hospitality-forward coworking company.

Following in the footsteps of NeueHouse's Hollywood and New York locations, the Bradbury Building will offer an array of membership options for private offices, shared workspaces, and more. 

Targeted at creatives, artists, and entrepreneurs, NeueHouse is part office and part social club—the company hosts high-end private events and exclusive cultural gatherings. CEO Josh Wyatt is excited to move into the "enchanting and inspirational building." It fits right in with NeueHouse's current portfolio, which includes the original CBS headquarters in Hollywood, and an old auction house in New York City.

Wyatt and his team quickly fell in love with the Bradbury's iconic architecture. 

NeueHouse will take over the second floor—all 30,000 square feet of it—and the space will offer private offices, communal work areas, and even a wellness room. "We will also have a ground-floor entrance and arrival experience," Wyatt says. "We loved this building because it’s so iconic and has its own sense of arrival."

Shared member spaces encourage creative exploration and foster relationships. 

While Wyatt says the company could easily expand at a faster pace, he believes they should grow mindfully and select buildings that truly inspire. "We ensure that the spaces have meaning and purpose. It’s not easy to find this type of building. Obviously, we fell in love with its seductive interior beauty, charm, and artistic moments that have happened in this building," he says.

NeueHouse Bradbury will provide private high-end cultural events for its members. 

NeueHouse prides itself on being "the home of the new," and Wyatt believes the historic Bradbury is the perfect location to move his company forward. 

For the interiors, Wyatt is working with longtime collaborator Anwar Mekhayech, founding partner of award-winning design studio DesignAgency. The two have worked together for a decade on adaptive reuse projects in historic buildings.

The plush furnishings, luxe color palette, and natural light align with Wyatt's mission of providing not only a coworking experience, but a hospitality one as well. 

"We want it to have this warm, residential feel so when people show up it doesn’t feel like an office," he says. "We’ve hand-selected the furniture, art, and lighting to encourage these explosive creative moments."
