DreamWorks Animation Campus

Glendale, California

Gensler and Steven Ehrlich Architects produced the master plan and design for this 13-acre campus to support DreamWorks’s television and feature productions. Based on the belief that employees are happier and more productive working in the comfort of home, the primary design goal was to replicate that experience. The campus’s Mediterranean styling features warm hues, arches and lush courtyards. A manmade river meanders through the campus, flowing beneath two buildings and following the path of a natural arroyo once part of the Los Angeles River. Amenities include a full-service commissary, library, fitness center, screening room and large piazza.
