To accommodate Beats by Dre’s innovative research, design, and development center, Los Angeles based Bestor Architecture collaborated with Loescher + Meachem Architects for the design and adaptive reuse of an existing three-building campus. The 105,000 sf. complex based in Culver City, California connects and integrates these elements together, providing employees more than just a traditional office space.

The new HQ accommodates working environments for three CEOs, four executives, and 650 employees

Within the newly built headquarters belongs building A, the ‘mothership’ and home to sales, marketing, finance, and administration – the logistics heart of the company. Building B is connected to A and is the social hub and home to the mixing studio, café, gym, and swing space. Building C houses the product development and engineering as well as a cutting edge, highly technical acoustical testing lab.
