Sony Pictures Entertainment is the television and film subsidiary of the media conglomerate Sony, with its company headquarters in Culver City, California, USA. The London offices, between Soho and the shopping streets of London's West End, are responsible for marketing and distributing their products in Europe. Set behind a classical stone façade in Golden Square, the interior was substantially rebuilt around a new atrium to bring daylight deep into the building.
Two daylight reflectors below the glass roof track the sun's path and reflect light into the glass-floored atrium that connects all areas of the building, with a flexible space for a reception, temporary displays and meetings.
Some 300 people work here in a mix of cellular and studio spaces. The screening room is a technically sophisticated installation to satisfy broadcasting and film industry professionals, and is often hired out for special events.
