KPRC’s Next Generation Broadcast Facility is a building designed to work seamlessly in tangent with the ever-changing media market. Flexibility was one of the architectural principles guiding the design of the project; creating spaces that promote adaptability and growth would enable KPRC to maximize their space to the fullest as their needs continue to evolve over time. The new broadcast facility, extroverted in its design, creates a welcoming culture by filling all workspaces with natural light, something their existing building was lacking. KPRC’s collaboration style also did not fit within their existing facility. Several departments were completely isolated from one another with little room for communication. Corgan took this as an opportunity to find ways to cross-pollinate teams by using the architecture to create natural and inviting meeting points. The central collaboration space was designed as a destination in itself with a sweeping monumental stair that offers vantage points to all main areas of the building. The landing of the monumental stair offers interactive views into the newsroom via a large glass window, linking people to the heartbeat of the building as they make their way upstairs. The team designed only one breakroom for the building, which was strategically located right off the central collaboration space on the first floor. This naturally creates a central buzz of activity and a place for employees to connect.
