EW YORK, NY — Designer Montroy Andersen DeMarco MG Engineering serves as MEP for new space housing production studios and offices Montroy Andersen DeMarco and Colliers Int'l. complete 20,343 s/f production company HQ N

design the new facility. “As a full-service television production company, we had some specific design require- ments for offices and produc- tion facilities. Our new New York City space accommodates several functions – an attrac- tive environment for hosting clients, a comfortable work- space for our employees, and efficient and functional editing suites,” said Jupiter Entertain- ment General Manager Robert Twilley. “The design for the $1.34 million space includes three conference rooms, 17 offices, 16 workstations, 40 benching

desks, and 24 edit bays,” said Daniel Montroy, AIA , MAD- GI’s principal in charge of the project. “The private offices are located along the perimeter. Through the use of glass office fronts, natural light permeates through to the interior of the space,” he continued. The general contractor was Phase 3 Associates and the mechanical, electrical, and plumbing (MEP) engineer was MG Engineering . Layout and Design Before Jupiter leased the floor, Colliers asked MADGI to fit out the full floor to serve as a marketing center to attract tenants to the building. It was to feature a conference room, reception area, pantry, and restrooms using a variation on the building’s standard finish. When Jupiter came on board, MADGI changed the program and performed a test-fit to en- sure the space would suit the production company. As Jupiter’s editors require low light, the 24 edit bays, each at 7'x9', are located facing the interior of the floor. The insets in the dark grey doors provide the only glazing in the otherwise opaque rooms. “We specified additional power and data for these rooms,” said in- terior designer Shauna Dack . “In fact, they have three times the power and data than what would be in a typical office space,” she continued. The team also included a few areas of open workstations where editors can work away from the confines of the edit bays. Design-wise, MADGI speci- fied a balanced look, with bright red wall sections con- trasting a neutral white-and- gray color palette. “To comple- ment the polished existing concrete floors we chose to specify gray monochrome car- pet in the meeting rooms, of- fices, and workstations,” said job captain Allie Roberson . “Painted concrete ceilings and new flat-spiral ductwork were used to accentuate the 12-foot-high ceilings, while a 2'x2' drop ceiling was used above the open workstations in order to hide edit bay wiring and provide for acoustic buf- fers.” Depth was added to the floor through the judicious use of light-gray convector covers and accent walls of dark gray and red. These were peppered throughout the space, such as in meeting rooms and on columns. 
