Mercy College BronxNet Studio
This project involved taking an underutilized area within the main cafeteria in Mercy College’s Bronx Campus and converting it into program space for a web based television studio. After analyzing and addressing the code ramifications for separating this area from the Public Assembly space, we developed a design as the Executive Architects that includes studio spaces, editing rooms, computer workstations, and support spaces. The new program space is separated from the cafeteria with glass partitions. An additional exit door was added to satisfy egress requirements from the cafeteria and an overhead balcony was enclosed with glass to prevent sound transference.
