Followed by the success of the 72 and Sunny Building 1 (Creative Studio and Offices) in 2013, 72 and Sunny Building 2 was completed in 2014. Building 2 has a beautifully designed bow truss roof structure over a heavy timber post and beam system. For the project, the expression of the two structural systems was the driving force behind the design concept. Rather than hang systems from the ceiling, they were consolodated and located in the mechanical platforms, which allowed the bow trusses to remain visually uncluttered. In the main auditorium, air is distributed through the bleacher so the ceiling above is void of duct-work. The result is a stunning expression of the bow truss structure above a carefully curated array of interior "buildings". The architecture has a residential quality and scale. The occupants feel at home, in a comfortable environment which is conducive to creativity and media.
