The chosen location for the studios was at the end of Copacabana Beach on Avenida Atlantica, a significant area in Rio de Janeiro. To avoid disrupting traffic and pedestrians, HBS constructed the studios on a nine-meter high platform. Construction began on March 6, with the studios being ready by May 22. The OPS offers a stunning view of Guanabara Bay and Copacabana Beach, and includes nine studios, 37 cabins, and generators, with features like telecom connectivity, sound isolation, and 24/7 BTP.
