Interview with REthink development about Cherokee Studios, an LEED Platinum certified live/work building in Los Angeles, CA. Everything from water filtration, energy efficiency, LED lighting, right down to the zero VOC free paints and finishes makes Cherokee Studios one of the “greenest” buildings in California.
I originally wrote about them this past June and was so excited about the building (soon to open this September), I scored an interview with the principals of REthink Development, Greg Reitz and Steve Edwards. A ridiculous amount of work goes into building anything in California with its strict building codes but going for the lust worthy LEED Platinum certification takes it to another level. REthink specializes in this kind of work so these guys are pros.
If you’re interested in architecture and the nitty gritty behind buildings like Cherokee Studios, check out this podcast. I have to apologize for the audio quality. Skype was being a little testy. Thanks so much to Greg and Steve of REthink and Aunny and Haily of Secret Agent PR for hooking this up. I can’t wait to see the building and Greg, Steve if you’re reading this. I still want to live there – for freeeeeeee.
