Many of these sets were built and filmed alongside sets used for Mockingjay - Part One.
The Int. Control Room set was built entirely on stage at ScreenGems Studio in Atlanta Georgia. Coin's Office sits on the second level.
The Int. Cafeteria was built in the basement of an old department store in downtown Atlanta. The existing coffered ceiling worked perfectly with the underground concept for D13. Our Set Decorator, Larry Dias, had all of the tables built, while our construction department built the additional columns with the monitors in them, as well as other wall units to enclose the existing escalators.
The Int. Meadow set was built in a local Atlanta convention center, and was meant to have an adjoining Hydroponics Lab, but was built separately from it due to time and stage space restrictions. Inside the Hydroponics Lab our Greens Dept. actually grew all of the plants shown - from seeds. Sadly, we needed to strike the set quickly, and none of the greens we grew were able to be harvested.
Int. Tigris's Shop and Cellar were both built on stages at Screen Gems Studio. The exterior of the store was an actual location in Europe, and we had a local art director there measure it for us, so we could recreate the front on stage. And, though it looks seamless on film, the store was not built on top of the Cellar, it was built in an adjoining stage.
