Integrating two new buildings and a park which serve as the heart of this expansive film studio lot, Fitzsimons' design integrated with the surrounding art deco buildings from the studio's inception and introduced the warmth of local vernacular architecture reminiscent of R.M. Schindler during the golden era of film. Achieving LEED Gold, the buildings house a 10,000 sf restaurant, 8,000 sf fitness center, and open plan, collaborative office space for Sony's Domestic and International Television divisions, and conserve energy with the use of photovoltaic panels, efficient central energy plant, while indoor-outdoor space and sustainable, healthy materials provide an energetic work environment balanced with natural places of respite.

In this interior adaptation of the historic Howard Hughes office building for this top creative agency, the original wood bow-truss system and historical features were restored, and embraced. The design inserted a 200 person stadium penetrating two floors as the central collaborative heart of the company, surrounded by floating seating boxes and freestanding meeting rooms. Influenced by the natural environment near protected wetlands, the design incorporated indoor and outdoor workspaces, a Green Living Wall, acoustically isolated edit bays/recording studios and adapted Howard Hughes’ original patent vault into collaborative meeting space, which celebrates the site's history, and inspires collaboration and creativity throughout the campus.
