JEREMY THOM DESIGNS ROLE: Production Management & Design Execution
From 2001 until 2007 Vanity Fair Magazine took over the restaurant, kitchen and three adjacent parking lots of Mortons Restaurant on the corner of Melrose & Robertson in West Hollywood. These were completely transformed, to the designs of Basil Walter Architects, into the premier Oscars After-Party venue for about 2000 guests. Every year the designs were different but for all of them I was instrumental in the production design and builds of these elegant and functional venues. The image shown here is from 2007 (see more below) and is the interior of a structure built over the parking lot, from blacktop up, in 5 days, and shows the quality of finish created to provide the venue for the most sought-after invitation in Hollywood.
