Scout Capital University Avenue California

7200 Square Feet

The headquarters of this successful hedge fund intelligently continues the industrial yet refined aesthetic of previous office projects for this long time client. Modern undertones complement the buildings’ structure through a tonality of simplicity balanced with raw finishes.

The duplex framework provides an opportunity to create a private vs. public dichotomy. The lower level houses offices for staff and executives, while the floor above contains more social components of the program. Throughout, full height glazed partitions, framed in anodized aluminum, give a sense of openness while satisfying acoustic isolation requirements. Natural light penetrates the interior through tactical placement of clear glass at the clerestory level, and is translucent below for privacy.

The office floor is organized along a custom millwork spine that guides one through the space and is played against a grid of open work stations in the same light wood finish. Curated selections of new, vintage, and tailored furnishings are complemented by subtle pops of color, anchoring the dynamism.

The upper floor entertainment and conference expanse successfully incorporates intelligent communal gathering quarters with a connection to the temperate California exterior. Donald Judd inspired shelving and custom cabinetry in the library provides a horizontal datum, while the multiple terraces extend a cordial invitation to the outdoors. The kitchen is an alternate oasis, enclosed in sliding perforated aluminum panels that create a sensation of privacy and separation.

The overall effect is an immaculate harmony of effortless, clean lines and industrial elements, which flawlessly exhibit Scout Capital’s spirited disposition.
