Academy of Motion Picture Arts and SciencesProject info >
The project is a full renovation of the Academy of Motion Pictures Arts & Sciences 1970s Headquarters on Wilshire Boulevard. The design was driven by the Academy’s vision for an open, functional and flexible workplace one that reflects the Academy’s contemporary mission and community outreach.
A new open stair fosters interaction between Academy members, staff and visitors by connecting three office floors to a top floor common space and boardroom. New windows in the formerly opaque Wilshire facade and a new skylight over the stair create a balanced daylit office environment.
