The Hercules Campus in Playa Vista, California, is a 28-acre redevelopment of historic buildings into an innovative office and studio complex. Developed by the Ratkovich Company and designed by Brenda Levin & Associates and EPT Design, the project uses a variety of features to connect employees and visitors to the picturesque surroundings.

Native Californian plants preserve water, limit landscaping needs of the campus and creating a natural outdoor setting. Outdoor spaces complete with picnic tables provide options for social interaction and outdoor meetings throughout the workday. Indoors, bowed truss ceilings, open spaces, and abundant operable windows provide ample access to light and fresh air.
