J.T. Magen builds futuristic New York headquarters for radio broadcast company iHeartMedia
Media company’s mod work space includes laser beam controls, stadium seating and privacy pods.
I want visitors to walk through the door and say, ‘Who the #*!% are these people?’ and I want them to get it in less than 5 seconds.
— Bob Pittman, iHeartMedia chairman and CEO, in a statement from A+I architects
Their marching orders were to strip everything, then leave it essentially raw. Standing out against the roughness, almost in defiance, are tidy, self-contained architectural interventions.
— Interior Design
Our headquarters buildout was a 75,000-square-foot gut renovation, from studs to completion, including several specialty features like broadcast studios, a 20-foot digital billboard and a suspended articulating robot. J.T. Magen’s strength lies in its skilled professionals and trade relationships. On more than one occasion, the site superintendent and subs made critical decisions in partnership with our design advisers and architectural team, and the aesthetic integrity of the design vision remained uncompromised, even through unique challenges.
— Molly Winkler, vice president of real estate operations, iHeartMedia Inc.
