Tucked away on Federal Avenue, just north of Olympic, is this very unusual-looking office building. Located at 2148 Federal Avenue, the building houses a bunch of creative firms including a graphics studio, a TV production company, an interior designer, and J. Staff Architect, the firm who designed this from-the-future building. John Staff tells us he designed and built the two-story office building in 1997 and that it's "behaved well." Stainless steel and concrete were the main building materials, and horsetail plants decorate the entryway above the underground garage. Staff is primarily a residential architect, whose most recent work is a lavish beachfront home on Malibu Road and a big remodel in Brentwood (see attached photos).
