Los Angeles, CA
A TV Production and Broadcast facility for the City of Los Angeles, within two historic buildings in the historic center of the city.
This unique project inserts a 21st century digital media program into a series of 19th century buildings. Channel 35 will re-inhabit the City of Los Angeles’s first theater (Merced Theater, a 1870 National Historic Registered building) with executive offices and facilities for live TV recording, production, and broadcast distribution. Also, on the ground floor there is a public live audience studio/theater for the use of the surrounding El Pueblo community.
The challenges of placing a state of the art digital facility TV Station in buildings constructed in the late 19th C., were many. The new facility will have a new public entry and plaza, a small ’Zocalo’ for communal public events, marked with landmark elevator tower.
