The balmy city of Los Angeles has a lot to offer, from residential courtyards to show-stopping showrooms.
A blackened steel-plate stair floating above a platform of IndoTeak engineered white oak defines the third-floor welcome area.
A trio of arced portals establishes a sense of transition between the living room and the bar, with an excavated and restored coffered ceiling.
Outdoor seating is delineated by a wall with bamboo insets and a mural by Maxwell McMaster.
Balconies overlook the central courtyard from which circulation evolves via the main switchback stairway.
Custom wood-block posters by Michael Dopp in Farrow & Ball paint are displayed on the walls.
Weaving inside and out, a ribbon of yellow ties the components of the complex together.
The lounge is separated from the gym proper by a custom screen of glass tubes and steel rods.
Decking for the second floor patio is ipe.
9. Apotheke Cocktail Lounge by Christopher Tierney
A 1960s Murano glass chandelier centers the lounge where custom banquettes are inspired by the facing Biedermeier settee.
