Philippe Starck Designs New Eastwest Studios (9 photos)

Main Entrance

One of our favorite designers is at it again! Leading soundware developer, Eastwest, recently purchased the historic Cello Recording Studios in Hollywood, California for their new headquarters. The legendary studio was used by the likes of Frank Sinatra, the Beach Boys, Madonna, the Rolling Stones and many more. Eastwest commissioned designer Philippe Starck to renovate the space, which is now the only studio in the world to offer, recording, editing, software development, marketing and distribution under one roof. Starck's aim was to create a series of spaces that ranged in size, to make the artists comfortable. He restored the historic elements of the building and focused on allowing the space to encourage creativity. The new building features a grand lobby, VIP guest suite, a number of artist lounges and kitchen. In addition there is office space for the studio manager, software engineers as well as a tech shop and conference area. Starck explains the inspiration behind the design, “I listen to music while I’m planning out my designs and I feel that my inspiration comes from the quality of the artist’s music, so sound is very important to me in this space… hopefully it’s my small contribution to some great music in the future.” Great work as usual, Phillipe!
