When we began the search for a new location, Hermosa was the first place we looked. As a South Bay native, I have always loved how Hermosa is a city built for community. It’s an active, diverse place that welcomes locals, tourists, daily surfers and weekend warriors alike.
In fact, Hermosa Beach was originally created to be the “playground of LA”. It represents everything that we love about Los Angeles: a lifestyle that moves seamlessly from outdoor to indoor, the pure sunlight of the beach, and a city that works on a human scale.
Those are the same values that we built into our architecture. We seek to build modern spaces that are filled with light and designed for a healthy, authentic lifestyle.
More importantly, the move to Hermosa Beach is not just about Laney LA. It is about you: our clients. We picked our new location so that you can visit us with ease in order to stay in touch with your project or play a game of ping pong.
The new Laney LA studio is just 8 blocks from the ocean, and walking distance from the classic Hermosa Beach pier. We are excited to be in a more accessible location, which will allow visitors to reach the studio on foot, by cart, skateboard, or scooter. For those of you who come from a little further away, Hermosa Beach is situated 10 minutes from LAX, and we have 29 private parking spaces - pure gold in this part of town.
We also get the added benefit of being closer to our construction projects, allowing us to continue to excel as agents acting on your behalf, and to build stronger relationships with our construction partners.
A Center for Design Excellence
Our new address on Cypress Avenue is in the heart of the Hermosa Beach design district. The South Bay is emerging from Los Angeles’ shadow as a destination for culture and creativity, and we’re excited to be a part of its forward-thinking, design-focused momentum.
Our new building. The new location is a single-story collective of creators, practicing a radical work culture of design and teamwork.
We’re offering improved facilities, including an updated and expanded material library, kitchen, conference rooms, and even showers for the sunset swims and beach workouts ahead.
Part of the Community, Part of the Conversation
One thing I’m especially excited about is the increase in space. Why? Because we’ll be able to step up our program of events, exhibitions, and education.
With our 20 foot projection wall, our goal is to invite you to many future “design dinners”, lectures, and events hosted in our space. We care about fostering connections with the incredible community of the South Bay, and we hope you’ll come join us as we start a new chapter of Laney LA in the beautiful city of Hermosa Beach.
In the meantime, let’s stay in touch. Follow us on Instagram for more updates, including invites to our opening party!
