New York, New York
Stardust is an innovative motion design, animation, and visual effects company producing commercial, on-air, music video, and in-store presentations based in Santa Monica, California. Stardust enlisted Assembledge to create an inventive design solution for their New York satellite office that was expressive of their cutting edge presence. The unique space for the challenge is in the heart of Soho residing in a historic 2-story building that spans and entire city block between Broadway and Mercer. The design solution looked to exploit this attribute by creating a transparent visible corridor through the space, which maintains the visual connection of each end of the space. The floating glass screen that creates the spaces for the shared offices along the north side of the space are made up of varying widths of glass panels. The more private offices along the south side are skinned in varying widths of painted drywall, glass and wood. These details along with the subtle vertical paint pattern on the soffit above are an abstract interpretation of the rhythm involved in the visual effects produced by Stardust.
