Renowned London Film and Photography Studio Settles into Manhattan
London-based Spring Studios made its New York debut during 2014 Fashion Week with runway shows by Michael Kors and Diane von Furstenberg. Four floors above the Verizon 911 Call Center have been converted into giant, flexible studio spaces for film and photography events that can accommodate +4,000 people at one time. In addition to back-of-house administrative spaces, the facility also offers food service, restaurant dining, and a rooftop terrace with expansive Manhattan views. A large portion of the existing brick façade was removed to create a new 30-foot-tall curtain wall letting western light into the photo studios. The design is the result of collaboration between MA and Aldo Andreoli.
