Located in the heart of downtown Culver City, the 30,490 SF Equinox luxury fitness club occupies a space in the eight-story, mid-rise One Culver building that formerly served as the headquarters of Sony Pictures.

The design concept of the club was inspired by the site’s unique location and lineage in the creative entertainment hub of Los Angeles. The façade is defined by the concept of “iconic portals” identified by qualities of the three street frontages, each with distinct urban characteristics: street, urban café and main entry.

The experience upon entry blends the retail boutique, café and membership concierge with a sculptural steel staircase leading to the second level. The second level connects a luxe lounge with the viewing deck of Sony Pictures Studio and private entries to the lockers, shower, sauna and spa suite, providing a rich experience from this exquisite club.
