Renovation, Flexible Space Functions

Twin Cities PBS (TPT) was redesigned to capture the vision of contemporary public media. Redesigning the 25-year-old space included creating a front entrance for the organization to encourage community interaction and to connect staff across all four stories through an open and multi-functional layout.

Three main collaboration zones anchor the corners of each floor and represent popular portions of Saint Paul’s urban landscape; loft style residences, 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 space functions as the lobby and collaboration space for the building but easily transitions to filming space, film screening, and/or a music venue by night.
