Piller/Segan/Shepard Film & TV Production
Renovation and addition to an existing 1930s glass blowing factory, located on Santa Monica Blvd, near the famous Formosa Café. The renovation included the addition of a second story office space for Michael Piller, producer and writer for the Paramount Pictures franchised Star Trek television shows and movies.
Recapture the vintage 1930s factory/warehouse aesthetic through the use of form and materiality. Create a dynamic first floor conference space for video screening of current film and TV projects, and high-level meetings, create office spaces for the assembled writing team, and add a dynamic second story office for Michael, with flexibility for creative writing, screening, meeting and entertaining functions.
A New York-loft feel for Michael Piller’s office, features distinctive metal-sheathed sculptural forms. A forward sloping large scale window, facing west down Santa Monica Blvd., from Michael’s raised wet bar area incorporates existing the concrete spandrel beam as a handrail.
Completed in 2001.
