37: Skylights | The Bunker

37m 00s |
In this episode, Cherise is joined by Aaron Neubert, FAIA, Founder and Principal at ANX with offices in Los Angeles and Las Vegas. Aaron shares his experience working on The Bunker in Studio City, California. Originally Hanna-Barbera Productions’ studio, the project is an adaptive-reuse transformation for a rising film production company’s headquarters.

The client, expressing great respect to the original tenant, desired an environment where ideas could be easily exchanged and accommodated private office and essential creative content workspaces. ANX’s solution exposed the roof trusses, and the masonry block walls within the communal spaces, while introducing sound isolated private offices around the perimeter. Within the communal spaces, they created numerous co-working and socialization zones, expanding the “domestic” nature of the space.

Chris Boadle, VP Project Development at Reaume Richardson shares his insights from a contractor's perspective.

This project has unique challenges and opportunities - a client directive to provide a space that was open and flooded with light yet private and hidden from the public, complexities of working within the limitations of an existing building, micro skylights were utilized to minimize the need for structural modifications, and much more.
