Awesomeness is a global media company with its headquarters at Pen Factory, a former manufacturing facility in Santa Monica, California. Awesomeness occupies the entire east building of the Pen Factory site, comprising 78,000 square feet on two levels, and accommodating more than 500 employees.
The design team created a campus-like environment, with interconnected public and private spaces. A "Main Street” corridor connects two large day-lit areas at each end of the building. The west end houses the entry lobby, a large circular pantry for daily catered lunches, and collaborative areas, with colorful mobile pods that function as private workspaces. The east end contains open meeting areas, gaming installations, and seating for large assemblies and screenings. Along Main Street, assorted “work hives” provide a range of choices for collaborative and individual work. These include open and closed workspaces, meeting rooms, a screening room, and production and post-production areas, with two filming stages, a green room, and edit bays. Partnering with AwesomenessTV, Tangram provided Muraflex’s FINO demountable wall product throughout the space to create modular collaborative and private spaces.
