The Beehive is a part of Conjuctive Points, a development that Moss has been working on with the owner of the Hayden Tract for some time. For this building, an existing two-storey, wood building was removed and a new two-storey structure was designed over the same footprint, leaving only the street façade as a place for the architect to creatively explore with materials. The project is an exercise in creating a public image for the building that is capable of communicating its presence in a limited area along a busy street (text from architect's website).
How to get there?
From downtown Los Angeles, take the 10 Freeway west and exit at Robertson Boulevard. Turn left onto National Boulevard and continue for about a mile, turning right onto Hayden Avenue. Parking is available along the street. This building is back out along National Blvd.
