In August 2019, Studio Other partnered with Los Angeles architecture firm, JK & Co formally known as OKB, to create a custom workspace for Burbank-based gaming company, Insomniac Games.
Insomniac Games currently occupies the top floor of the Media Studios complex, but recently expanded their headquarters by an additional 11,500 square feet with a renovation, rebrand and new build-out on the fourth and fifth floor as well. The expanded space accommodates Insomniac’s growing workforce and embraces their welcoming and collaborative culture, reinforcing its evolution from a startup to a mature and thriving video game developer.
Because this was a refresh to their existing office suite, the company required a full set of workstations and private office furniture. Studio Other worked in collaboration with JK & Co and Insomniac Games to create a comprehensive concept for 270 workstations and 15 private offices that would achieve an eclectic and modern office true to their brand.
The height-adjustable workstations featured white laminate surfaces and included light blue, cobalt and teal felt surrounds and black powder coated steel built-in storage units. This system was designed to meet the unique user needs to accommodate specialty equipment requirements and large computer screens. Desiring an open look and feel while maintaining privacy, Studio designed some workstations with higher panels to achieve design requirements set forth by Insomniac.
In contrast to the workstations, private office desks were crafted with each user’s needs in mind. Teal powder coated steel bases and height-adjustable oak laminate surfaces. The storage solution continued the steel and wood theme with a distinctive hutch design that showcases personal items.
The end result was an eclectic, yet clean and modern space that honors its startup roots while embodying its current brand and culture.
