London auction house Christie’s wants to hang even closer to its Los Angeles constituents.

The company is preparing to move its L.A. office from Century City to a 5,400-square-foot space in Beverly Hills in April.

Terms of its lease at 336 North Camden Drive were not disclosed.

The two-story flagship space is owned by Shahram Bonyadlou and Shahrzad Mazehri, according to property records. The investors acquired the building in 2014 for $1.09 million.

The all-white structure – similar in color to its neighbor Gagosian Gallery – is closer to the firm’s L.A. collectors. The company said clients were asking for greater access to the firm’s services such as appraisal, private selling exhibitions and art-related estate and wealth management services.

Christie’s new space is designed by firm wHY, the team behind projects such as Marciano Art Foundation and Los Angeles County Museum of Art.

It will feature private meeting areas and offices, as well as 1,400 square feet of green space on the second level that will be used for outdoor events.

Christie’s first opened an office in Los Angeles in 1978. Its second West Coast location, in San Francisco, opened in 1982.
