our mission

Ciel Creative Space was born from love and a desire to expand the creative community in the East Bay with an artistic home for creatives that offers an ecosystem of creative excellence and encompasses all the necessities to make content at its highest level of quality. We believe in community and creating from your truest form.  

founders vision

Cecilia (Indigo Sky Creative) and Alexis (Laurent Studios) have partnered to create a new artistic sanctuary in the East Bay for creative minds to explore, collaborate, and co-exist. With Cecilia’s deep understanding of the creative industry and production, and Alexis’s expertise in designing and building successful beautiful spaces, their combined knowledge provides a unique offering with thoughtful design and engineering that offers world-class necessities to a variety of teams in the fashion, tech, art and entertainment communities, and encompasses all that is needed to create freely.


OUR PHILOSOPHY

Ciel Creative Space believes in urban acupuncture - this site was selected through analyzing all the social, economic and eco factors between urban designers and the community in the East Bay.  Just as acupuncture is aimed at relieving stress in the human body, the goal of urban acupuncture is not to disrupt a community, but to help release tension and let energy flow naturally.

With Ranahan Productions already being a neighbor, Little Giant branching to the East Bay, and Indigo Sky available to produce your dreams, Ciel is the perfect house for your creative needs.
