When it came time for an office remodel , Culver Studios, the studio behind films like Gone with the Wind, Rocky, Carrie, King Kong and ET, approached Shannon Wollack and Brittany Zwickl of LIFE.STYLE. “The goal behind the redesign of The Culver Studios’ offices was to remind people where they were and of what had been accomplished in this space, but doing it more subtly than with movie posters. We wanted to be creative in how we reminded people of their hard work.” – Shannon Wollack When you enter the space, you are greeted by an exaggerated faceted wall of light wood with copper accents. The idea of faceted and geometric shapes is carried through the rest of the design. Copper accents (copper is a big trend in 2015) can be spotted through the office space’s design, like on the legs of the director’s chairs in the image above.  The side table is a custom piece and is made from a stack of old scripts with a lucite top. How much do you love the copper hexagon tile backsplash!? The copper finish on the inside of the pendants carries the use of copper through the rest of the kitchen. “Green Light” of course references the signal that means “go” on a traffic light, but in film-speak it means that a project’s financing has been approved and the movie can move forward from development to pre-production and principal photography. In this case, it’s a piece of wall art with a whole lot of meaning. The main conference room’s walls are lined with old movie and TV scripts and production stills attached with binder clips. The designers commissioned street artist Good and Shiddy to paint a mural with Culver Studio’s movie characters likeScarlet O'Hara, Batman and King Kong. Sean Sullivan, who can wield a mean Sharpie, was brought on to draw a mural of a trailer on set filled with different props and costumes from various Culver Studios productions. The mural took a whopping 600 (!!) hours to complete. Studies show that employee productivity is increased in aesthetically pleasing environments, so I think this office remodel hit it out of the park.
