America Media Offices

America Media, a Catholic news organization growing from a 100 year old print weekly to a multimedia news organization asked Marvel Architects to provide them with a new home that supported their new work culture, while still respecting their history. A workspace that merged the collaborative process for print and electronic publishing became the underlying goal of the project.

The heart of the project is the newsroom, a hybrid space that speaks to both traditional and new media. Aesthetically, it is reminiscent of the newsrooms of the past, with a wide open and collective feel. Functionally, however, it is fully equipped with the latest state of the art technology.

Along with a new office space the project required creating a new shared living space for 12 Jesuits in a nearby building. Individual living spaces were kept very compact but complemented with generous shares spaces on a floor of dining and living spaces as well as a roof terrace.
