In 2014, 72andSunny moved Into the Former Offices Of Howard Hughes At Hercules Campus in Playa Vista. 72andSunny enlisted the acclaimed architectural firm Lean Arch Inc to re-imagine the space. Together, they transformed the once desolate property into a light-filled collaborative environment, while maintaining its historical foundation.
Martin Bros. worked on Building 2 which has a beautifully designed bow truss roof structure over a heavy timber post and beam system. For the project, the expression of the two structural systems was the driving force behind the design concept. Rather than hang the systems from the ceiling, they were consolidated and located on mechanical platforms, allowing the bow trusses to remain visually uncluttered. In the main auditorium, air is distributed through the bleacher so the ceiling above is void of duct-work. The result is a stunning expression of the bow truss structure above a carefully curated array of interior “buildings”. Martin Bros. craftsmanship was able to bring a residential quality and scale to this corporate office environment. The occupants feel at home, in a comfortable environment which is conducive to creativity and media production.
