Barbie: Filming locations and set details

Warner Brothers studios and Deamhouse

While the film is absolutely gorgeous to look at and its pink aesthetic is pleasing to the eyes, the majority of the movie was filmed behind closed doors. Barbie was majorly shot at the Warner Brothers studios in Leavesden, England. The gorgeous and life-sized Dreamhouse was created right there by production designer Sarah Greenwood and set decorator Katie Spencer. Their inspiration for the set was the midcentury modernism of Palm Springs.

The design duo ordered a toy Dreamhouse from Amazon to study the proportions and design elements. Gerwig told Architectural Digest, "I wanted to capture what was so ridiculously fun about the Dreamhouses. Why walk down stairs when you can slide into your pool? Why trudge up stairs when you take an elevator that matches your dress?" She added, "There are no walls and doors. Dreamhouses assume you never have anything you wish was private."

Other filming locations

The director added that she wanted the artificiality to feel more authentic than CGI which is why hand-painted backdrops of the clear sky and the San Jacinto Mountains were used. "We were literally creating the alternate universe of Barbie Land." Some portions of the film were also shot in Los Angeles. This is where fans can actually visit and feel the experience.

Back in June last year, leaked pictures of Margot Robbie and Ryan Gosling on Venice Beach created a massive buzz online. The two actors were spotted in costumes: wearing matching neon and colorful outfits along with rollerblades. Los Angeles is famous for its boardwalk and travelers from across the world come to see it from their own eyes. Meanwhile, themed locations like pop-up Barbie cafes and the Dreamhouse by Airbnb were available to enjoy.
