In developing a NYC flagship site for live and on-demand, indoor spinning classes, the Peloton brain trust recognized the need for a cutting edge video broadcast studio for the streaming element of their visionary program. Company co-founders, CEO, John Foley, COO, Tom Cortese and Marion Roaman, (an indoor cycling pioneer), engaged Walters-Storyk Design Group for the acoustic and isolation design of a broadcast-quality production facility with studio lighting and systems integration. The resulting Production Control Room (PCR) and 60-bike TV Studio is a key component of the 8000 square foot complex. Located at 140 West 23rd Street in NYC, Peloton Chelsea also features spa-quality ambience, a refreshment lounge and, a sports fashion retail shop.

The new offices of the Paris based digital photo retouching studio B’Pong were designed to help launch their presence in New York City. The entry space and central conference area are wrapped in stacked homasote, to create a sense of mass and weight, a counterpoint to the light coming from skylights above. The workspace beyond is accessed through a door in the mass and reveals glowing workstations. These are encased in corrugated resin and perforated metal screen, creating a moiré effect around the desks.

The brief from this young couple was to design both living accommodation and studio space for sculpture & painting. Located in a millenary old forest of towering trees, on the shores of Lake Pirihueico in the south of Chile.
The proposal was to make a brightly lit and welcoming refuge, which inhabits the rough nature of its environment, enjoying this from within a core which maintains its distance, but at the same time both integrates with and emphasizes its surroundings. Formally it assimilates the vernacular architecture of the south, with large (overhanging??) roofs and simple rounded geometric volumes roughened?? through the ageing of the timber. The building form is not willful given the wet summers and extremely snow filled winters experienced by this remote lake set amongst the foothills of the Andes, but at the same time it contributes to the fantastic existing nature of the place.
