We are excited to officially announce the opening of our new two-story headquarters that we designed to redefine the traditional ad agency model, merging creative and production all under one roof. The renovation follows our rapid growth over the past few years and is a strategic plan to expand and enhance all our services into the global market.
Our renovated 8,200 square foot space is located in the heart of Seattle’s Central District. It features the work of local artists, including a hand painted mural by Ten Hundred Art, which rests on the back wall of the office’s basketball court; Plank & Grain designed, reclaimed wooden tables for collaborative work sessions; and Ben Zamora, Seattle’s acclaimed lighting architect, designed the celestial fluorescent light sculpture hanging above the staircase. Eli Martin, Managing Director of Workhouse Creative, and Seattle firm, Shed Architects, led the overall design of the space.
We have outfitted the first floor of the space as a state-of-the-art post-production facility, including 8 VFX workstations with 3D capabilities, 3 edit suites, superior color and sound suites, as well as a monstrous server encased in glass monogramed with its nickname, Megatron. Additionally, the first floor includes a comfortable, homelike living room complete with a full, contemporary kitchen, bunk bed room, and even a boxing area.
Our main floor is designed to be a collaborative space, featuring high ceilings, natural light from surrounding windows, and an open floor plan that includes a ping-pong game room.
Formerly Seattle’s historic St. George hotel, the building was particularly noted as an important part of the Central Area’s music scene in the 1930’s, where community musicians gathered in the basement, which served as a speakeasy during prohibition.
Stylistic aspects of the space were designed with inspiration from our work on Microsoft’s Surface 1 announcement video, as well as other well-designed modern workspaces, including Red Bull and Google offices.
We built a space that brings people together and reflects our values as creators, and fosters a collaborative culture.
