With a mission to connect the world’s professionals by making them more productive and successful, it should come as no surprise that LinkedIn Corp. would pursue a similar goal for the recent renovation of its Sunnyvale, California campus. The social media giant tapped Interdisciplinary Architecture’s (IA) new studio for its Media Productions team to create a space designed to foster creativity and support highly technical video production processes, all while keeping employees safe in the post-pandemic age. The design seamlessly blends workspaces for visioning, storyboarding and workshopping with state-of-the-art studio environments, bringing creative and technical teams under one roof to streamline video-on-demand and live broadcast content production.
The Garage: Creative Workshop
Showcasing Film and Audio History
Designing for the Post Pandemic Age
With the help of an arborist, Interdisciplinary Architecture was able to widen parking spaces per code requirements without disturbing the protected Redwood trees around the building. The studio totals 11,000 square feet and combines two sound stages, audio recording studios, green rooms, editing studios and VIP reception lounges with conference areas and open-plan workspaces for creative collaboration. The project achieves NC- 20 noise criteria for HVAC and NC-25 for sound isolation.
