Universal Music Group

< | >

House & Robertson was executive architect and project manager for a 185,000-sq.-ft. creative interiors project, which consolidated three music labels into a single five-story office building in Santa Monica, California. As each label wanted to maintain its own identity, each had a separate design firm working on its space, and HRA undertook the task of developing a single set of technical and construction documents based on the varying programmatic and design goals of each group. The Universal Music Group label involved 85,000 sq. ft. and included computer server and support areas, video and music editing bays, a full recording studio, listening rooms, a commissary, and executive offices. The other two labels, MCA Records and Interscope Geffen A&M Records, took approximately 50,000 sq. ft. each and incorporated a variety of similar specialty programs in each of their suites as well. The project was completed in 2000.
