The shared work collective opens a new members-only space on the west coast after success in New York City.
Shared work collectives -- spaces where "solopreneurs" can punch in for the day -- have become as ubiquitous as the start-ups that frequent them. But Neuehouse, which opened in New York city in 2013 and also serves as a private members-only club, has found an additional way to set itself apart in the form of their second and newest location, which will open later this month in Los Angeles: A 70,000 sq. foot space which was formerly the 1938 Columbia Square CBS Radio Building and Studio.
"It's a beautiful landmark building," says Neuehouse co-founder Joshua Abram of the soon-to-open second location, which is almost twice the size of the New York members only co-working space, and comes equipped with sound stages and old recording studios which will become conference rooms. "There is a rich musical tradition. Johnny Cash recorded 'I Walk The Line' there, the Beach Boys insisted on recording there, and Barbra Streisand recorded there. We're really going to double down on music, live performances and the whole opportunity for creative inspiration. Ideally we'd like to be a place where people who are involved in music are free to experiment and work out ideas."
