Back in March, we revealed that DTLA's Arts District would soon become the home of a 13,000-square-foot yoga/juice/cafe/wellness center called The Springs. Founders Jared Stein and Kimberly Helms tapped Catherine Johnson and Rebecca Rudolph of Design, Bitches to design the massive hub, which is set to become the neighborhood's one-stop shop for eco fashion fans, yogis, vegan foodies and juiceheads. We took a tour of the under construction space last week to see a lay of the land and learn more about what's in store for this exciting project, soft opening in August.
Although there's clearly a lot of work to be done until The Springs is officially unveiled, Stein and Helms have a clear vision of what they're looking to create. "We really hope The Springs can become an oasis for Arts District residences and folks in the greater Los Angeles area," Helms explains. The duo also have tons of local talent joining them for the ride. "LA is the perfect place for this—everyone is so collaborative! Local street artists are even going to do custom murals for us." Take a peek at the construction site below, along with an in-depth rundown of what to expect.
