Rios Clementi Hale Studios provided space planning, interior and graphic design for the tenant improvements to a four-story, 10,000 square-foot landmark building in Beverly Hills which created new West Coast corporate offices for Arista Records. Working closely with the client produced a distinctive and elegant corporate atmosphere which conveys Arista’s commitment to quality and innovation.

A security station and visitors’ reception are placed on the street level entrance, staff and support areas on the second floor, main reception and executive offices on three, and conference room facilities in the top-floor penthouse. Office and support spaces are arranged symmetrically along central corridors.
Every office provides desk/work facilities, banquettes for viewing video presentations and mini-conference spaces. Noise-muting double walls and duct silencers are employed to buffer offices from competing audio/visual presentations.

Major finish materials used are white-painted walls, cherry wood used for cabinetry and horizontal banding, brushed aluminum detailing, and sand-blasted glass panels, which are used to cross-funnel daylight and optically enlarge the interior space.
