Heimat—which means 'the feeling of home' in German—transformed a 1930s industrial building in Hollywood into a palatial structure through thoughtfully sourced marble, woods, and custom forged metals among others. Raw concrete elements and original graffiti from French street artist, Mr. Brainwash and alike, strike a balance between high design and industrial edge.

Original murals on view were commissioned by emerging artists Albert Macias, Jessalyn Brooks, and Sophia Dherbecourt to elicit L.A.'s vibrant cultural topography. Interior design was done by Germany-based design studio INCO (floors one through three) and renowned Martin Brudnizki Design Studio (floors four and five).

After freshening up in the locker room, you might never leave. Marbled floors and countertops accented by hand-crafted wood paneling, custom brass fixtures, and greenery potted throughout are just a few reasons why. There's also a uni-sex relaxation room complete with Mies van der Rohe's Barcelona Day Beds, surrounded by the silhouettes of tropical vegetation.

After getting in some work or a workout, head to Mother Tongue, Heimat's open-to-the-public restaurant helmed by Michelin-starred Chef Michael Mina. Designed by Martin Brudnizki, the indoor-outdoor concept exudes eclectic minimalism vibes with bold coastal-inspired pastels. It seats up to 150 guests and adjacent to the terrace sits the pool and jacuzzi accented by daybeds and cabanas where members can chill out.
