nonzero\architecture in Santa Monica, Calif., announces that 740 Sound Design has a new home in a recently completed state-of-the-art studio facility. Executive producer Scott Ganary and Academy Award-winning sound designer Dane Davis founded 740 Sound Design in 2001 to provide feature-film-quality sound design for commercials.

The relocation project, designed by nonzero\architecture and its media facilities division studio bau:ton, opened in January 2010 and created 740's own audio post-production facility, allowing it to add mixing to its award-winning sound design service.

Reportedly 10 times larger than the company's previous space, the facility includes two mixing stages, two voice-over/Foley rooms and multiple sound design rooms. The modern and streamlined mixing suites take up 2,000 square feet of the 9,000 square foot facility, leaving room to build additional studios in the future.

According to nonzero\architecture, a bright and generously sized open kitchen and lounge area is at the core of the new design, offering all amenities as well as plenty of space to relax and mingle.

A sky-lit sound lock and vestibule leads into the large mix rooms and the recording spaces, the larger of which measures more than 300 square feet and can easily accommodate Foley, ADR, music recording and more. The mix rooms provide comfortable client space and 5.1 mixing with Pro Tools systems, and are connected to a central machine room. Warm wood tones and fabric surfaces are balanced with natural concrete floors and crisp and clean detailing, offering a focused yet relaxed work environment. Indirect lighting and custom-designed wood furniture contribute to the creative atmosphere.

Veteran sound mixer and producer Scott Ganary has worked extensively on cinema, television and commercial projects for over 20 years. With 740, whose name derives from the speed of sound, he has produced more than 1,300 commercials, winning three CLIO Awards, and an array of others.
