Bray Architects creative studio and corporate offices in West Hollywood were bought by a young man who chose to commission Bray Architects to design his recording studio and corporate offices. He discussed in exacting detail his vision and goals for his enterprise; wrote a check for the project; and left to go backpacking across the newly-open-to-foreigners China. The young man was David Geffen. His company was Electra-Asylum Records; and the Architect was William M. Bray, AIA, NCARB.
Some years later, Electra-Asylum Records expanded the building, adding several underground parking levels; and several additional floors above the existing structure. Bray Architects, headed by William M. Bray and Roger Winston Bray, designed the additions for David Geffen.
Although another company now owns the building, it is virtually unchanged from the original Bray Architects designs.
