Building the Wallis Annenberg Center for the Performing Arts in the heart of Beverly Hills involved the creation of a new cultural facility that both preserves and adapts the landmark 1933 Beverly Hills Post Office. Construction included a new 500-seat, state-of-the-art theater adjacent to the original Italian Renaissance Revival post office, three classrooms, a 150-seat flexible studio space, a donor lounge, production support services spaces and administrative offices.
