space: Ikonica, photography studio and post production facility.

design objectives: When Jackson Huang took over this space, it was dirty, raw and industrial. Volume blocks that house an entrance, storage room, washroom, change room, and kitchen, help to demise a post production office area from an open shooting and meeting space. Dramatic lighting and spatial gestures were paramount for the client. A series of three massive sliding, acid etched glass doors on stainless steel hardware were employed to provide visual privacy for shoots while still providing a flow of light. Amongst the prominent features of the studio, there is a large glazed garage door in an existing opening that acted as an equipment loading area in this third floor industrial space. The sheer boldness of an 800 square foot cyclorama with seamless plastered coves designed for corner-less shooting, forms a visual counterpoint to the existing patinated industrial metal sash windows.
