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.
