Spy Hop Productions

The new Spy Hop Productions building in Salt Lake City sounds like an apt title for a James Bond 007 movie, but it's actually the name chosen for a non-profit youth digital media arts center that offers in-school and after-school youth in-care and satellite programming. One of the new complex's signature features is a third floor performance space that's been enhanced through the inclusion of a glass bifold door from Schweiss Doors.
