A tailored expansion
With all sectors of the global economy leveraging new communication platforms, Loyola Marymount University’s Media Studies programs are flourishing. This building enables the school to meet growing demand, with a four-story facility equipped for the industry’s latest production modes. The School of Film and Television (SFTV) hosts stop-motion, film, and animation studios, technical labs for post-production, flexible all-purpose classrooms, office spaces, and an 80-seat theater.
Through an exhaustive programming exercise, we evaluated the existing facilities’ suitability for long-term use and precisely determined the spatial needs. The resulting design creates spatial efficiency wherever possible with mobile furniture, storage, and all-purpose rooms, in addition to the carefully-considered specialty classrooms.
