Gensler Designer Talks About New Arts Club Project

Arts Club, West Hollywood speaks to LA’s flavor & originality: Gensler’s Hogan Chun [Video]

Designer Hogan Chun sits down with Sorcha O’Higgins of TopHotelNews to discuss the beautiful new Gwyneth Paltrow-backed Arts Club on the Sunset Strip.

Gensler’s contribution to Sunset Boulevard’s streetscape is certainly bold, and aims to integrate the community into its volume, as designer Hogan Chun explained. We take a look inside the ambitious design for the Arts Club, one of the Creative Spark finalists at TOPHOTELWORLDTOUR Los Angeles.

Chun says that although some of the residents were sensitive about what the project would mean for the neighbourhood, ultimately the result would be a really positive one. “I think the fact that this was really an art-focused, literature, anything related to the arts, sciences, music, dance; everybody was really behind what the essence of the project was.”

Although there is a heavily private element to the project, considering it is a private members’ club, there is also a public aspect to it, in the form of the ground level community plaza and a flexible visual arts and performance space. The upper levels are comprised of outdoor terraces that interact visually with the street. The entire building generates a mix of uses and functions, so that it activates the street and allows the public to become engaged with the building.

WeHo Reaches Deal on Log Cabin With City of Beverly Hills

Published

on

WEST HOLLYWOOD — The City of Beverly Hills and the City of West Hollywood have reached an agreement regarding the property located at 621 N. Robertson Boulevard – also known as the ‘Log Cabin’ site – which is owned by the City of Beverly Hills but is located in the City of West Hollywood.

With an agreement signed this week, the City of West Hollywood will lease the site from Beverly Hills for a period of twelve months and intends to sublease the premises to the West Hollywood Recovery Center, which will continue to provide the same level of addiction recovery services currently offered at the site.

“We are thrilled to be able to secure this space to safeguard vital recovery services. Tens of thousands of people have been helped by the 12-Step meetings offered at the ‘Log Cabin’ and with the addition of the West Hollywood Recovery Center as the lead nonprofit we can count on another four decades of meetings and community recovery,” said West Hollywood Mayor John D’Amico. “These meetings will remain a vital resource for the West Hollywood, Beverly Hills, and greater Los Angeles sober community. The City of West Hollywood has been committed to preserving access to services at this addiction recovery space and this lease agreement with our neighbors in the City of Beverly Hills is a testament to working together to address community needs.”

“We are pleased to have reached an agreement with our neighbors in West Hollywood to allow the crucial services at the Log Cabin to continue,” said Beverly Hills Mayor Lester Friedman.

The Lions Club of West Hollywood formerly leased the site, but that agreement is now expired. The City of Beverly Hills provided notice to the Lions Club to vacate the premises by March 31, 2020.

“We sincerely appreciate the work of the Lions Club over many years to support community organizations and provide valuable meeting space,” added Mayor Friedman.

Due to coronavirus (COVID-19) health emergency and Los Angeles County Safer at Home Orders, all meetings have been temporarily suspended at the site due to the need to accommodate social distancing requirements. Community members may check for updates at http://thewhrc.org.
