A 1940s puppet theatre in West Hollywood has reopened as a networking space for women in leadership, and its rooms are full of colour and drama.
New York design studio AvroKO led the interiors, finishing up a full renovation by architecture practices JM|A+D and TAP Studio and making the most of the building’s high ceilings and natural light.
The palette is a mix of neutral and rich shades, with walls painted in half colours and paired with jewel-toned furniture.
The studio installed a mix of vintage and contemporary pieces throughout the clubhouse, creating what it describes as ‘a worldly aesthetic’ that still offers members ‘softness and richness’. This is evident in the courtyard, which has striped loungers drawn up around a fire pit that feels a million miles from the city outside.
Chief’s five conference rooms are particularly impressive, each following a different colour scheme and featuring long tables, striking light fittings and graphic-patterned rugs. The club is aimed at women at senior executive level, creating a network of peers as well as offering mentorship and coaching. Membership is assessed on an individual basis.
