Near South Studios
Glass Lake Production Group
Fort Worth, TX
Near South Studios desired new offices for their long-standing film production business. Additionally, they wanted small offices to lease to creative professionals, and a modern professional production studio to rent out for still and video work. Converting an 8,000 s.f. cheese cold storage facility to modern offices and production facilities offered interesting design challenges for their requirements.
The design plays the new requirements against the old high and low ceilinged spaces, existing brick walls and prefab cooler structure, using their corporate color to highlight the structural pieces. The warmth of the brick, the coolness of the prefab cooler panels and the rigor of the original structure add warmth, interest and vitality to the space.
The AIA Fort Worth Award winning project includes a comfortable editing suite, sound recording booth for voice overs, dressing room and prop support for the studio, and generous common spaces for multiple users.
