Featuring a re-design of the mezzanine atrium into a shared social area, the new studio boasts high ceilings, enclosed meeting areas, communal lounge spaces and flexible free-desk arrangements. The new interior retains many of the existing features of the 1897 building, creating an elegant, hotel-like aesthetic.
