The Hollywood Palladium was designed by architect Gordon B. Kaufmann.   The Streamline Moderne building opened in 1940, with a concert by Frank Sinatra and the Tommy Dorsey Orchestra.   The joint venture of Newport Capital Advisors and Commonfund sought to rehabilitate the building, and add/alter the structure to accommodate a bigger stage, dressing rooms, and stage lighting.   SGH assisted the design team with the rehabilitation of the building enclosure.
