Framestore offices by David Howell Design & RAC Design Build, Los Angeles

November 24th, 2014 by retail design blog

Framestore moves out West. DHD has designed the previous 4 spaces occupied by Framestore in NYC SoHo district. We were asked to design the LA (Helm’s Ave / Culver City) location and collaborate with local architects RAC. The industrial building we converted had a past life as a fabric fire-retardant workshop, specializing in fire protection for the airline industry. The 50’ high tower, now a conference room and roof top hangout was where they hung the treated fabric to dry. Design features include defunct parking meters and NYC subway strap hangers. The client lounge has 2 period TWA business class seats, complete with ashtrays. Occupation May 2013.
