Android Experiments & Google Music Studio
We created a bespoke space for Android™ Experiments from two shipping containers. The internal fit out included walls clad with Baltic birch ply peg boards and an adaptable mounting system for the Android Team to display the latest interactive experiments. Windows were created along one of the 6m walls, with graphic lettering cut from aluminium composite panels mounted externally. The floor was covered with a concrete-effect lino and a full electrical fit out provided distribution for all devices and lighting.
For the Google Play Music Studio, we built an Android-shaped structure comprising a steel frame and timber walls, clad inside and out with ply. At 6m high and located outside, it had to be able to withstand wind speeds of 100kmph. Two oak-effect barn doors led inside where we laid an astroturf floor and applied oak veneer panelling to walls, accommodating mounted touch screens to the rear, pressure pad switches in the floor and upholstered booths to either side. Three sets of over-sized pull-down headphones were manufactured in our 3D printing workshop and fitted with a ceiling-mounted spring mechanism to offer user adjustability. Outside, we made concrete-effect Android branded planters, dotted around the Android Garden.
