Handshakes are real. Bricks are real. Making something out of nothing with your mind or your hands is real. Honesty and respect are real. Camaraderie is real. So is hard work and so is passion. Real has staying power. The list of things that aren’t real grows everyday. We fend them off by keeping in mind what matters.
Brick and mortar buildings. High bay truss ceilings. That’s the 1950s. A history you can still feel at Standard Works. Creative office, retail, restaurants and studios built on 6 acres in the heart of El Segundo.
