Saint Paul, Minnesota

Twin Cities PBS

Twin Cities PBS (TPT) was redesigned to better reflect the vision of contemporary public media. Redesigning the 25-year-old space included creating a front entrance that encourages community interaction and an open, multi-functional layout that connects staff across all four of TPT’s stories.

Three main collaboration zones anchor the corners of each floor and represent popular portions of Saint Paul’s urban landscape: The Farmers Market and Mears Park. Former storage space on the street level now serves as an iconic, multi-functional hub for TPT. During work hours, this area functions as the lobby and collaboration space for the building, but easily transitions to film screening and/or a music venue by night.
