Set in an existing mid-century building in east Austin, this conceptual design for the offices of a highly regarded film production company sought to create a space that encouraged a collaborative work environment. In addition to this flexible open space, the program also called for sound privacy to accommodate film production and studio editing. While the production spaces also required the absence of daylight, the remainder of the design sought to maximize the use of sunlight through integrating existing skylights, incorporating glass into interior office walls and adding glass to the existing exterior fa├žade. The reception area also includes the design for a film projected logo wall.
