Sliding glass doors become part of the café or studio for uses like photoshoots, meetings, and performances. Users will have the ability to move operable screen panels to control natural light and ventilation in the studios, live entertainment venue, and culinary experimentation space.

There will also be two adaptable, natural light courtyards with a three-part aluminum screen securing the building with four possible configurations. With the adaptability of the spaces, the entire project is seen as a perfect way to navigate this current age of social distancing.

The Art Room is one of several coworking-type spaces planned for Los Angeles. Chief, which is designed specifically for women, is opening soon, and Atlanta-based The Gathering Spot, which has over 5,000 members, is looking to debut in mid-2021 in the West Adams neighborhood.
