5670 Wilshire

Rapt Studio as Designers

Rapt Studio announces the completion of its latest West Coast project, the reimagining of 5670 Wilshire, an iconic 27-story tower in the historic Miracle Mile district of Los Angeles. The 483,461-square-foot building in Central L.A. was built in 1962 as office space for the California Federal Bank, commanding attention as one of the tallest buildings on the Westside, with visibility across the city.

With a long history of working on projects representing the intersection of spatial experience and emotional connection, Rapt Studio capitalized on the opportunity to bring a sense of community and shared experience to the building’s occupants.

Located along Miracle Mile’s famed “Museum Row,” the building features a remarkable arts program (courtesy of NAVA Contemporary) and draws inspiration from the neighborhood’s clashing grid system, reflecting the intersection’s shape with a unique rhombus form, and landscape and flooring designs that follow suit. Other notable design upgrades include scalloped marble walls by Amalfi Stone and Masonry, fluted custom wood from Basically Cabinets, sculptural light fixtures developed in collaboration with Luke Lamp Co, and dedicated spaces that promote an indoor/outdoor connection.

What was the brief?
To renew the building’s sense of place while retaining its storied history. Rockpoint’s goal was to design thoughtful, best-in-class amenities to promote wellness and productivity for tenants, with a cohesive aesthetic to complement the thoughtful upgrades that Rockhill has implemented to office space and common areas.

What were the key challenges?
This project presented an opportunity to bring a sense of community and shared experience to the building’s many tenants. Discerning tenants now want more than city views and a parking garage, and Rapt Studio developed a thoughtful program in response.

Tenants may now choose to work out or unwind in the new fitness center, which features a yoga/boxing studio and private shower rooms, schedule their meetings in a modernized, reconfigurable conference center, or relax on the lush outdoor patio. Additionally, tenants in the media space now have access to a professional-grade theater in which to showcase their work. The exterior courtyard has been refreshed to offer flexible semi-private spaces for tenants to gather, meet, work, or book events.
