You wouldn’t know it, but BTS Communications’ headquarters is a thing of beauty. It’s a gem in an otherwise aesthetically ordinary-looking neighborhood. We’re perched right above a shopping center near the intersection of National and Venice. When you’re downstairs at T-Mobile hassling the salespeople for a better data plan, we’re right above you. That’s us.
Situated between an architectural firm and a Yoga studio, our building is a modern-looking glass and steel structure. The Glass windows have enough reflective coating to stave off the high noon heat, and they offer panoramic views of the Los Angeles skyline. Air quality permitting, we’ve got unobstructed views of the Santa Monica mountains, Hollywood sign, downtown LA, and the San Gabriel Mountains.
Word has it, this building was once a pasta factory. This was the actual company logo:
It was a nice gesture by the current building owners to save this tile mosaic from being demolished.
The interior has two floors. The space is simple and clean, with high ceilings and great lighting. The exposed ducting and fire-sprinklers give it a modern, loft apartment feel. It’s an airy, functional space that for now, is home sweet home for BTS communications.
What do you guys think of our little slice of paradise?
