Washington, D.C.-based Hickok Cole Architects has designed a new headquarters for National Public Radio (NPR). The 440,000-square-foot offices will feature a 90,000-square-foot newsroom for NPR’s broadcasting operations, with additional multi-purpose spaces such as conference and training centers, all housed in a repurposed, four-story structure. NPR plans to use common areas as gathering spaces for public events, promoting its engagement with the D.C. community, as well as for highlighting the organization’s history through an exhibition entitled “This Is NPR.” Hickok Cole Architects’ design is targeting LEED Gold certification, and the firm anticipates NPR’s occupancy this spring.
