SPF Transforms Historic Beverly Hills Post Office into Performing Arts Center

24 October, 2013

-By Holly O'Dell


The Wallis Annenberg Center for Performing Arts has opened in Beverly Hills, California, with design by SPF Architects. The design team, led by SPF principal Zoltan Pali, transformed the 1933 Beverly Hills Post Office and added a 500-seat theater to the site.



To meld the new building with the post office’s Italian Renaissance Revival style, Pali adorned the exterior with Swiss cement panels that are tinted to look like copper. The rehabilitated post office will house a flexible 150-seat studio space, donor lounge, three classrooms for a youth theater school, a café and gift shop.
