Oculus Light Studio, LLC, ("Oculus") located in Culver City, CA, announced the opening of their new studio in downtown Seattle.
"With Oculus Seattle, we will be closer to our many clients we enjoy working with, and it will be an opportunity to cultivate new relationships in the dynamic design community there. We will also be able to better service our projects already in design and construction in the region," says Scott Hatton, principal and partner at Oculus Light Studio.
Oculus’ recently completed projects in Seattle include the South Lake Union Lakefront Blocks, home to new Google offices and two luxury apartment towers. Another local project is Block 21, where Amazon has expanded their amenity and headcount spaces; and one of the towers houses Mary’s Place, a non-profit family shelter. In addition, Oculus is continuing to collaborate with Seattle architects on both local and international commercial, retail and hospitality projects.
Archit Jain, the other principal and partner, has worked with Seattle clients for over 15 years. "My first project in Seattle was in 2003, and since then it has been a series of projects originating in my most traveled-to city. I can point to the one project where it all started and amazingly, many people on that first project are still our clients today," says Archit.
Joel Weston, Associate, who has been with Oculus in the Los Angeles office for over 4 years, is now permanently based in Seattle, where he is leading their work in the Pacific Northwest.
Oculus has been in business for eight years, with a constant and steady growth every year. Oculus would like to recognize and thank the support from their designers, clients and manufacturer representatives, without whom this progress would not have been possible.
