Super Mysterious Minimalist White Building … Playa Vista, Los Angeles

This low-slung white box of a building is a mystery to many. It’s a former stand-alone retail space on Centinela Boulevard that’s been converted to unmarked offices (or something) in an unremarkable patch of suburban Los Angeles on Playa Vista’s eastern edge. The windows have been shuttered with vertical slats and the size of these portals suggest the building could have once been a mattress or piano store. In any case, its plain, minimalist aesthetic adds to the mystery and gives it beauty.
