This project is the total reinvention of 5,000 ft2 of empty office space a few blocks from the Pacific Ocean. Music Sales is an international family of music publishing companies who have been a client of Barr Gazetas for 10 years. We have built projects for them in London, New York, Los Angeles and are starting work on their Bury St. Edmonds facilities.
The building originally had only an external link between ground and first floors. We demolished this and cut a double height space to form a link in the centre of the building. Rofflights were added to give maximum light penetration for the client’s extensive art collection. The curved stair links the spaces and references the curves of the grand piano, which is an integral part of Music Sales identity.
Upstairs, the board room, glazed officers and open plan create a variety of spaces above which ducts are threaded through lattice beams.
