The Studio

Over the years, Hollywood Sierra Kitchens has been located in the Heart of Los Angeles’s La Cienega Design Quarter, with kitchen vignettes designed to help our clients see the quality elements and features of a fine custom kitchen. As time has elapsed, and the COVID-19 pandemic kept many of our clients at home, we have brought the Studio to our prospective and active clients, without the need to spend time away from home. Beginning in January of 2023, Hollywood Sierra Kitchens will operate without a studio, with appointments available at convenient times with just a phone call or an email to us to schedule.
