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.

In line with the organization’s mission, the materials and finishes that make up the space speak to the austere and humble character of the Jesuits. Natural wood, exposed raw concrete, and soft and neutral textiles are the main drivers of the design.

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.
