Feature Animation Studio


Confidential Client


Seismic Renovation, Adaptive Re-use, Workplace Planning and Design


Emeryville, CA


26,000 square feet

This feature animation production facility included a comprehensive building renovation of a former warehouse and commercial bakery. Due to sublease commitments, the interior improvements were completed in phases over seven years. The challenge for the design team was to implement the vision of the initial master plan while taking into consideration the evolution of the client’s needs and work style.


Sharon Risedorph and Bernard André

Carefully selecting finishes and collaborating with Pennsylvania-based artists, the design team incorporated elements that speak to the region's significance. The result is a welcoming and functional workspace that not only fosters collaboration but also celebrates the unique character of the area.
