To love a thing is to know a thing. Collectively, the team at Rubies+Diamonds has spent the better part of seven decades immersing ourselves in the history and tradition of coffee and tea. And yet, we’re not afraid to mix it up by incorporating shiny new technology or infusing our drinks with crazy flavor profiles and innovative ingredients. We take great pride in preparing the quintessential pour over coffee and steeping black tea to perfection. But we’d also love to shock and awe your taste buds back to the Stone Age with one of our truly unique concoctions. Rubies+Diamonds is a furious mash up of old and new. And hey, that’s a good thing because everybody wins!
Built in 1938, Columbia Square was the most modern technology facility of its time. Designed by renowned architect William Lescaze in the vanguard International Modernist style, its state-of-the-art recording studios and theaters cemented Hollywood as the entertainment center of the universe.
A decade after CBS abandoned its 4.7-acre site, Columbia Square - now a Kilroy Realty Corporation property - leads Hollywood’s revitalization. Rios Clementi Hale Studios, House & Robertson and GBD Architects Inc. have created a modern interpretation of a studio lot. The future home to innovative companies from around the world, Columbia Square is a space that resonates with clarity and beauty.

Designed to foster the collaborative spirit, Columbia Square gives creativity a new home in Hollywood. By blending historical reuse with new construction, Kilroy Realty has preserved the architectural character of a Hollywood classic and put it to work for tomorrow. It’s a second act with impressive gusto.
