As the ultimate television destination for baseball fans, MLB Network is known for its comprehensive coverage of the game, featuring the multiple Emmy Award-winning MLB Tonight, live regular season and Postseason game telecasts, highlights, analysis, and original programming all year long.
Kimmerle Group & Kimmerle Newman Architects recently completed a redesign at MLB Network in Secaucus, creating an open edit environment that enhances its ability to create and deliver compelling and comprehensive baseball programming every day.
Kimmerle Group’s architecture, interior design and branding teams created large open studio benching and built out individual soundproof edit rooms. The end result is an open, inviting space, with hundreds of screens, modernized acoustics, and dramatic design elements that are now visible from the main entry to the building. The space also includes flooring that replicates a baseball field, complete with carpeted base paths, home plate, and padded “outfield” walls. The entire space highlights the state-of-the-art environment needed to produce high-quality and timely baseball content.
Paul Newman, principal in charge and Cindy Cui, principal of Kimmerle Newman Architects, took the lead in working with the technical teams while Emily Harker worked on the branding and interior design for the project. Mike Walsh and the team at Corporate Contracting Inc. assisted in building out MLB Network’s infrastructure behind-the-scenes.
