NBC has officially opened their new Washington DC Bureau and Studios on Capitol Hill. LDG has been a part of the process at every step, providing both lighting system design and broadcast lighting design for more than 5,500 sq ft of studio space & 16,500 sq ft of newsroom and support space. The newly redesigned studios mix the neoclassical and federalist architecture prevalent in DC with touches of modern design. LED elements are integrated into the architecture to help set the mood for each show along with the distinct lighting cues.
Broadcasting from the new studios will be NBC’s Meet the Press and Weekend Today, as well as MSNBC’s The ReidOut with Joy Reid, The Cross Connection with Tiffany Cross, The Sunday Show with Jonathan Capehart and additional Washington programming for both networks. Congratulations to our design teams led by Senior Designer Niel Galen, who traveled over 4,800 Amtrak miles in four years, Richard Hoyes, Mark London and to all the talented people who contributed to the design of these impressive new facilities.
