6,600 SF Office and 4,000 SF Studio
Red Productions Office, coworking space Backlot, and Studio occupy the main floor of a development called MAIN+BROAD. As part of a larger vision for the development, Red Productions and Backlot are part of a Media Production Development Zone, created by the City of Fort Worth, that’s meant to serve as a hub for local creatives.
The building shares a story and what better tenant than a storytelling company. Built in 1926, the building formally housed Crouch Dairy Supply. Found objects included gears from an old elevator, pews, and a conveyor belt. The original brick, ceiling and concrete floor give the space a rugged character. And that leftover elevator hardware now house a conference table. From the entrance, one is greeted with shelving and the break room instead of a formal entry. Open work spaces are located near the east windows. In the center of the building is a wooden jewel box designed with an emphasis on clean lines and glass to bring more natural light deeper into the space. Lights illuminate beneath the box, creating an illusion of floating.
The studio is oriented with north facing windows to not allow light to enter the space directly. The building’s naturally thick walls, coupled with added sound absorption material, soundproof windows and doors, and sound vestibules prevent outside sounds from coming through. The space is large enough for cars to roll into and a two-sided cyc wall is inside.
