Entry DescriptionThe design of this 230,000sf interior office and production studio is intended to elevate the organization’s fast growing media business while providing an iconic, timeless environment. One of the major challenges was to maintain design coherency while enduring various pandemic related construction phases and health-required revisions. The finish palette is overwhelmingly dark, so easily controllable lighting is used as to support the overall architectural design vision while adding its own thematic character. Various lighting patterns were used to create visual interest, to break up large spaces and to create a direct tie-in to the media organization’s main purpose.
The project is illuminated with 4000k CCT sources throughout to support the crisp contrast of primarily black and white finishes.
