The Rock-N-Platinum party on the 29th to celebrate Lofts @ Cherokee Studios, green building and music history definitely lived up to its name - it rocked! Especially with the help of Aussie singer/songwriter Ben Lee. Ben played an amazing set for all the greenies and design buffs in attendance and was more than happy to record a message for our blog!
The Lofts @ Cherokee Studios, which now sit on the site of the iconic recording studios and are aiming for LEED Platinum certification, pay homage to some of the artists that recorded at Cherokee Studios over the years. The great, sustainable interior design was done by Dennis Design Group, Rogerio Carvalheiro, Jennifer Siegal and Sandra Sharma.
After touring the Alice Cooper Lair, complete with a giant leather snake on one of the walls and all of the skulls and handcuffs you could imagine, we got to talk to the designers behind the tastefully, ghoulish space. It turns out that Dennis Design Group and, according to them, Alice Cooper are big fans of Habitat for Humanity's work!
The interiors of the lofts are impeccably done and would provide anyone with an endless amount of design inspiration. The building itself is also something to see - the elevators use less energy than a hair dryer! Luckily, if you missed the party you can take a tour now through November 15th. They run every Saturday and Sunday from 12pm-5pm and you can buy your tickets here. Plus, the proceeds are generously being donated to us and will help us build more green homes for deserving families in Los Angeles.
