GUEST BLOGGER // Spencer Lowell for Elder Statesman

One more guest blog from me today – it’s Laura filling in before the Thanksgiving Holiday!

Spencer shot the first and only Elder Statesman retail location here in Los Angeles – it is so beautiful and designed in collaboration by none other than Commune Design. The store has been getting so much positive press from fantastic publications including Details Magazine, T Magazine and Style.com.

The store is opening just in time for some holiday shopping – perfect!

Take a look at Spencer’s images and the most recent article from Details here to learn more about the new hot space.

And HAPPY THANKSGIVING!!!!

Spencer Lowell featured in COMMUNE: Designed in California

Our friends at Commune have just had their first monograph published by Abrams on their amazing body of work – interior and commercial design.

Spencer has photographed a lot of Commune projects most notably the ACE Hotel Los Angeles from the start of restoration and renovation to completion and he is proud to be featured in the book and the book is gorgeous!

” Commune was established in Los Angeles in 2004 by four like-minded souls—Roman Alonso, Steven Johanknecht, Pamela Shamshiri, and Ramin Shamshiri— with a common mission: to enhance life through design and to blur the lines between disciplines, eras, and styles. ”

Spencer Lowell – The Ace Hotel Los Angeles – Hello LA!

Spencer started photographing the Ace Hotel downtown at the beginning of the restoration and renovation of the historic building and theater. Over the last two years he had documented with his photographs the complete process and metamorphosis into what we now see and enjoy as the Ace Hotel Los Angeles. This work was done in conjunction with the design firm Commune. Here are just a few of the photographs of the completed project including the theater.

It was originally built as the United Artists Building and later known as the Texaco Building. The building contains the historic United Artists Theater, the flagship theater built for the United Artists motion picture studio. The theater was later used as a church by pastors Gene Scott and his widow Melissa Scott under the name ”Los Angeles University Cathedral.
