CoOP Editorial

The design of this 4700 sq. ft. tenant improvement evolved from the unique challenge to remodel an early 1960’s Frank Gehry-designed commercial structure located in the heart of downtown Santa Monica into the stylish west coast branch of a full service post-production facility based out of Chicago. Three separate, soundproof video-editing bays were required, in addition to a conference room, an executive producer’s office, and lounge areas. Their specific programmatic and technological needs, combined with the good bones of Gehry’s original space, inspired lead designer Lawrence Scarpa’s vibrantly eclectic solution. His design engages the user, heightening their sense of awareness and bringing them a deeper understanding and vitality to their experience of the space.

In the treatment of the CoOP project, Brooks + Scarpa successfully incorporates the complex demands of a high-performance production studio with striking aesthetics that speak to the creative nature of the client’s work.
