LOS ANGELES, CA
The one billion-dollar makeover of Westfield Century City has created an open-air garden retreat unlike any other in Los Angeles. Everything about the property’s design is meant to surprise capturing the essence of Los Angeles and the outdoor Southern California lifestyle and providing a sense of “easy elegance” through a design that channels mid-century modern architecture, coupled with a Mediterranean flair. The architecturally patterned and layered facades incorporate large areas of glass to highlight the activity and energy of the center occurring within and are interrupted by portals which highlight richness and warmth of the interior ambiance beyond. Once inside, customers enjoy layered courtyards that pay homage to the Mediterranean climate, with reflecting pools, Moroccan-inspired tile, rich wood slatted trellises as well as art, ceramic, and sculptural pieces specially commissioned for the property. At the heart of Century City sits the Atrium, a grand new space for live events and entertainment which also functions as the property’s living room – with eclectic tables and chairs, long communal tables and pop-up displays.
