Creative Office Interiors:
The flagship YouTube studio, YouTube Space LA is a brand new, state-of-the-art production facility in Playa Vista, designed specifically for YouTube creators to produce original digital video content, from an idea through editing and uploading to YouTube.
The YouTube Space LA is a creative production facility for both established and emerging YouTube content creators who are part of the YouTube Partner Program. At the YouTube Space LA, YouTube creators learn from industry experts, collaborate with other creators and have access to the latest production and post-production digital video equipment.
The building is situated at the historical Howard Hughes hangar, home of the “Spruce Goose”. ARC provided MEP designs for the facility, which includes a cinema soundstage, post-production studios, motion capture, screening rooms, green screen studios and rehearsal rooms. The main goal was to create a state-of-the-art broadcast studio facility that still respects the historical elements of the enclosure and sites.
There were multiple challenges for ARC here: Without disturbing the facade, which as a historical landmark had to remain virtually untouched, ARC designed brand new power, mechanical and plumbing systems that achieved LEED Gold status, in the face of huge power demands. ARC was very proud to be a part of such a unique project.
