Marin County, San Francisco, CA
When all of George Lucas’ companies were headquartered in Marin, QA was brought on to design all of the auxiliary company spaces that were not located at Skywalker Ranch. These 20+ projects included over 300,000 square feet of adaptive reuse in old warehouses in the Canal District of San Rafael. These spaces housed office, sound studios, computer graphics labs and marketing for companies such as THX, Industrial Light + Magic, Lucas Learning, Lucas Arts, and the George Lucas Foundation. Each with its own unique parameters, every company wanted its distinctive identity through the branding of the space. When all of these companies were slated to move to the Presidio in San Francisco, QA had invaluable and intimate knowledge of the inner workings of all of George’s subsidiaries and was contracted to write the program for the 900,000 sf state of the art facility to which the Lucas Digital Ltd. Companies ultimately inhabit today.
