HOUSE OF BIJAN

Location: 443 N Rodeo Dr, Beverly Hills

Contractor: Shawmut Design and Construction

Architect: Pizzulli Associates, Inc.

House of Bijan — one of the oldest and most iconic luxury boutiques on Rodeo Drive — relocated just north of its original home, first opened in 1976. The new location — with more space to house the luxury brand’s products along with its headquarters — honors the longstanding Bijan vision and tradition while creating an updated and more contemporary space. Both the facade and interior walls boast House of Bijan’s trademark yellow, and iconic heritage elements from the original store — the entry door, grand chandelier, and antique armoires — were incorporated into the new location.
