Kyle Goforth, one of our location designers, shares his notes, thoughts, and inspirations behind a brand new
retreat workspace in Venice.
Venice, California is perhaps the greatest place on Earth. Famous for its canals, beaches, and two-and-a-half mile pedestrian boardwalk, it's the perfect place to soak up some sun. Oh, and get to work.
555 Rose is a hop, skip, and a jump from the beach. If you're worried about distraction, fear not—Google's right around the corner. And if they can hold off from surfing from 9 to 5, so can you (for a few hours at least). Plus, this dreamy space is surrounded by cool cafes, shops, and restaurants to satisfy your wanderlust when you get a quick break.
The interior is bright, airy and open and includes a mezzanine work area, lofty spiral staircase, and double-height ceilings; where can you find this anywhere else? The suite can be used for almost anything, from a spacious off-site to a bangin' pop-up shop.
The space was designed to channel a cool ocean breeze, with soft, neutral tones mixed with tropical blues (the ombre carpet is the ocean).
