Interior Architecture Preserves Original 1940s Warehouse in Santa Monica’s Former Industrial Corridor Gwynne Pugh Urban Studio with Andy Waisler has recently completed an adaptive reuse of a 1940s bowstring truss and brick warehouse in Santa Monica. The 17,000 square foot building was artistically designed for a well-known animation studio that has recently achieved significant commercial success. Urban Studio designed an interior renovation that is warm, forthright and efficient, while also elegant and inspiring.
As is a consistent throughout all of Urban Studio’s designs, sustainability and conservation were of paramount concern throughout the tenant improvement process. The design maintains the structure of the 1940s bowstring trusses and brick warehouse along with stripped down and polished concrete floors.
The centerpiece is the ‘The Cube’ that serves as a screening room, two editing rooms and a central IT/Server room for the entire office. Using natural lighting paired with efficient lighting design, the space incorporates natural woods and clean colors to create a vibrant and natural aesthetic.
