Epic Games, known for developing cutting-edge video games and cross-platform game engine technology, retained MSTSD to design this innovative, none-traditional workplace reflective of their dynamic company. This $12,000,000 phased corporate campus includes the design of a new 3-story, 60,000 SF Class A office building, an 8,000 SF connector building, and a 3,600 sf Motion Capture building.
The project included the renovation and interior fit-up of the existing 30,000 SF Class A office building. The goal of this fit-up was to create a unique space that was custom-fit to the company’s organizational structure and culture, while being sensitive to collaboration, visual privacy and noise control. Connectivity was achieved with an interior main street connecting offices, fish-bowl gathering spaces, impromptu meeting areas and ancillary spaces. The building’s interior design details were developed to create a dynamic, yet functional office building. Upon entering the lobby one is greeted by a 15’ Epic Gaming character and a two story departure slide was added to the lobby for whimsy. The terrace level comprises of a fitness and aerobics room, shower/restroom facilities, lockers, and laundry rooms. The multi-use space contains a two story audio visual wall, an employee lounge, and a rock climbing wall. The high-bay motion capture building was developed for the special computer production of animated video games.
