Size8,000 sf

Located on Hollywood’s famed Sunset Boulevard, the new Columbia Square development’s main tenant is Viacom. The company moved its offices for major channels such as Comedy Central and MTV from Santa Monica to the new Hollywood location in 2018. SWA was brought on to work with Rottet Studio in developing design concepts for all outdoor areas associated with the new headquarters. This includes a flexible 4,500-square-foot terrace at Level 3 in the building, to be used for film events and as a breakout space for employees/visitors. The office can also utilize amphitheater-style seating to view a presentation from the craft services area on the interior of the building, as this area is open to the terrace via a sliding glass entryway.  A gathering space called “The Workshop” accommodates team meetings, while a lounge area provides intimate seating areas for eating lunch while taking advantage of the view to the hills and iconic Hollywood sign. Shade and greenery are abundant within “The Retreat,” which receives the most direct sunlight. The terrace’s major design is a multi-faceted custom planter system with built-in seating.
