bld architecture was selected by steel equities and aurora contractors to design the new york film and sound studios for netlflix located at 333 johnson avenue in brooklyn. the new facility will house six new film studios of 10-20,000 gsf plus a large mill shop. each studio has a clear ceiling height of 40 feet and is constructed of 12” thick pre-cast concrete bearing wall panels.
an existing industrial building was fully renovated and converted into the business operations of the facility, including lobby / reception, executive offices, vip lounge, green rooms, hair / makeup rooms, adr, and support. careful attention was given to the location and coordination of mep&fp systems to limit any noise transmission. together with acoustic treatments to the interior surfaces, the studios achieve an overall acoustic rating below nc-30. bld architecture is also renovating the adjacent property for steel equities to create a post production studio, offices and fabrication shop. these fully renovated buildings bring vibrant new growth to an established and important industrial corridor.
