STUDIOS drew upon common practices in offices, hotels, clubs and art schools to design a hub of technology and culture on a historic site.

The challenge for the “House of Technicolor,” was to bring together a widely diverse population including creative staff, engineers, administrators and visitors to share a common corporate culture in an inspiring setting.

Creativity and technology play off and complement one another at this site dedicated to imagination and innovation.

The Technicolor experience begins at reception and continues through the main stairway to the light-filled atrium. 

STUDIOS leveraged the energy and volume of this central area to make it a lively space whose great flexibility offers options for a host of different events and informal meetings.
