Text description provided by the architects. DHD has designed the previous four spaces occupied by Framestore in NYC’s SoHo district. We were asked to design the LA (Helm’s Ave / Culver City) location and collaborate with local architects RAC. While RAC Design Build focused on transforming the building's Tower and Exterior Architecture,  DHD concentrated on Framestore's signature and Interior Architecture.

The 50’ high tower, now a conference room and roof top hangout was where they hung the treated fabric to dry.
