2007                  GAME SHOW NETWORK TV STAGE, CULVER CITY, CALIFORNIA

Space limitations and growing demand forced the Game Show Network to build a second Live TV stage in their Culver City production building. The only available space was an open atrium in the ‘bowtruss’ building, which had won a national AIA award when it was first built by architect Steven Ehrlich. With some trepidations, the glass conference room in the atrium was ultimately removed and the TV stage was inserted. The goal of the design was to provide the necessary stage space while minimizing the impact on the overall building with its clerestory windows and double height space. Galvanized metal cladding reflects the light and rounded corners help to reduce the bulk of the new volume.
