NeueHouse, the private workspace and cultural home for creators, innovators and thought-leaders, announces its expansion to Venice Beach and Miami, bringing its US locations to five. NeueHouse Venice Beach will mark the third location in Los Angeles, joining NeueHouse Hollywood and the recently opened space in the iconic Bradbury Building in Downtown Los Angeles. NeueHouse Miami, in partnership with private members’ club, hotel and restaurant, Casa Tua, will be the second east coast location, alongside NeueHouse Madison Square, located in Manhattan.
Located on the same street as the former workshop of Jean-Michel Basquiat, and Larry Gagaosian’s first gallery, NeueHouse Venice will occupy a historic building owned by renowned producer, Tony Bill. In succeeding Snap Inc as the building’s tenant, NeueHouse will focus on reviving and reimagining the creative spirit of the space which Bill created. Previously, the location was a production facility and office to creative luminaries including Caleb Deschanel, John Landis, Hal Ashby, Oliver Stone and David Hockney – all of whom at various times exhibited art, scored and screened iconic films and television shows.
The design of NeueHouse Venice Beach will be led by Los Angeles and Toronto-based DesignAgency. Having overseen NeueHouse’s most recent opening at the historic Bradbury Building, NeueHouse Venice Beach will celebrate residential modernity with design that fosters cross-community collaboration.
“Bringing NeueHouse to deeply authentic, creative communities like Venice Beach, in an architecturally historic space, is another step forward in delivering upon our mission to cultivate a creative system at the intersection of commerce and culture – all underpinned by design-driven environments, elevated hospitality and truly original cultural programming. In an age of mass growth and commoditized ideas, we revel in delivering hand crafted, thoughtful moments based upon a deep sense of meaning, emotion and passion. That is what sets NeueHouse apart. Our continued expansion in Los Angeles speaks to the creative community’s cross-town demand for the NeueHouse offering and experience, in a city culturally defined by its abundance of creators.” said Josh Wyatt, CEO of NeueHouse.
To deliver upon its hospitality promise and to captivate Miami’s discerning local creative and entrepreneurial communities, NeueHouse’s Miami location will offer a culinary partnership with Casa Tua. Founded in 2001 by Italian-born visionary Miky Grendene and his wife Leticia Herrera-Grendene, Casa Tua’s flagship property, nestled in a historic villa in the heart of Miami Beach, is part culinary destination, part boutique hotel and private members club. NeueHouse Miami will offer F&B by Casa Tua, providing NeueHouse members their singular approach to soulful Italian cuisine and impeccable service.
Wyatt adds “We are thrilled to bring NeueHouse to Miami, collaborating with Casa Tua to provide the local community with access to the best elevated work and event spaces, as well as refined hospitality and culture, which is true to our shared mission of delivering new and original concepts and experiences. Often leading the way in art, design and fashion, Miami is an exciting addition for our members and growing community, and we’re looking forward to bringing our combined brand offering to the tastemakers and industry leaders of Miami.”
“We are excited to partner with NeueHouse for their first Miami venture,” says Miky Grendene, founder of Casa Tua. “Both Casa Tua and NeueHouse are committed to offering best in class experiences in each city we operate. Our brands share a similar DNA and passion for developing cultural communities and meaningful hospitality experiences. With this natural synergy, together we will achieve a far greater result through this strategic partnership. We look forward to creating something unbelievable with NeueHouse and supporting the City of Miami’s growth in this emerging cultural corridor.”
Both property developments are slated to open in late 2020, adding to the list of notable activities, which have taken place in recent months, including a series of cultural events in partnership with Frieze art fair, highlighted by the commission of a notable piece of public art by the iconic Barbara Kruger.
NeueHouse, which raised $30 million in funding in Fall 2018 under the new leadership of CEO Josh Wyatt, continues to innovate across workspace design and hospitality, scaling its cultural programming platform, to deliver a truly differentiated experience to a community of original thinkers and thought-leaders. Both the New York and Los Angeles flagship locations (Madison Square and Hollywood) are at capacity and have waitlists, including the latest luxury private suite product, Eleven Madison Square.
