Film and Production Offices in Madrid by Madland Studio
March 2nd, 2011 by Sanjay Gangal
The assignment was to relocate the new head offices of a film and TV production company (recording, editing, dubbing and audiovisual production). The program of functions can be classified in four parts: management and administrative area (offices and meeting rooms), technical rooms (audio, image, set and backstage), common public area (multifunctional space, toilets and cafeteria) and installation area (machine and storage rooms).
The enclosure is solved with methacrylate and plywood pine panels depending on the needs of the interior work rooms. The wooden structure on the outside is used to create “vitrine” shelves where the videotapes, created by the firm, are stored; following the concept of the central volume as a showcase structure.
The interior partition walls of the nave have wooden wool panels as paneling material, 60cmx60cm in dimension, fixed to a wooden strip grid . This material helps the technical rooms acoustically and allow the electrical installations to be accessible.
Due to the low height of the space and the complexity of the preexisting and new installations (air-conditioning, electricity, plumbing and IT) the decision is taken to leave them in sight. To solve the ceiling aesthetically and acoustically a continuous layer is projected. The covering is applied in black due to the strict luminic needs of the technical rooms. The central nave, where the most complex rooms qua installations are located, is fed by accessible metal trays which help the maintenance of the complicated electrical needs.
