The headquarters of this production company serves the many needs of a five-team workforce. To encourage both independence and interconnectedness, BO-DA Architecture devised a five-storey office of two stacked forms – joined by a central window-clad stairwell – that fit beautifully into their tight, sloping site. On the three floors that sit fully above grade, each team is given an entire wing to itself, while the split-level design enables easy communication.

The building is as conducive to relaxation as it is to work: the bottom levels include a sunken garden, a floor made from beautiful multi-hued wood, and a two-storey vinyl LP library.
