The objectives for Discovery’s three-story, new Latin American headquarters was to develop a sustainable and state-of-the-art digital television production facility and office space for over 200 creative, technical, and marketing staff.

Working closely with a broadcast systems integrator, a nontraditional broadcast center was created. Acoustically sensitive audio and video production areas were effectively joined with master control and satellite transmission components in a user- and visitor-friendly environment.

In the general office space, high levels of collaborative work dynamics are effectively supported by recycled timber cabinets that also provide communication and utility wire management. Flexible zones are arranged adjacent to the timber trusses, accommodating individual and group work styles.
