Kastner and Partners

The Brief

Red Bull’s advertising agency sought a unique creative office solution to house its Los Angeles team, something clearly Redbull, to make a statement as they entered the market.

Strategy & Results

Prior to founding rsf LA, Michael Preiss acted on Kastner and Partners’ behalf to secure a high profile Los Angeles location. Charged with thinking “outside the box” (a permanent offshore cruise ship was once suggested by a Kastner principal) a not so radical solution was found by assembling a three building portfolio and converting it to a single tenant showroom and office. This iconic building still stands at the entrance to Main Street, recognized for KDA’s timeless architecture (an architect Preiss introduced to the project) and brick and timber interior. It’s been home to Kastner and Partners ten years.
