L.A. Louver Gallery

Collaborating with L.A. Louver, a gallery deeply embedded in local art history, meant collaborating with its community.

Located between the crowded, highly visible Venice Beach Boardwalk and residential neighborhoods, the gallery’s home uniquely suits its own part-public, part-private identity—public exhibition spaces coexist with semi-private viewing rooms and private offices. Its location invited unique challenges as well.
Inside, the elegant lines and volumes of the spacious and smaller downstairs galleries easily adapt to accommodate the gallery’s roster, a diverse combination of established icons and younger artists. Upstairs, a long sunlit gallery with smooth white plaster walls leads to an open-air skyroom intended for sculpture.
