Digital Domain

Digital Domain was constructed to house a computer graphic design firm that specializes in digital animation and military simulation.

The use of Tilt-Up construction allowed the design of a unique window opening configuration that resembles the bar lights of an old computer system. Further, Tilt-Up enabled the use of unusual cantilevered panel sections and also allowed for a smooth, natural interior finish (the panels remained uncovered by interior finishes). One concern for this owner was balancing design with the necessity to meet the 145-mph wind load required in the area.

Tilt-Up is a proven construction method for meeting such restrictions and the construction method enabled the designers to fulfill this requirement while still employing large glass facades.
