KCRW Radio Station


Santa Monica, California

About This Project

Type: Offices, New Construction
Area: 34,000 SF


The West Coast’s most popular radio station and NPR affiliate, KCRW, commissioned CWA to design its new headquarters, to be built on the site of Santa Monica College’s expanded Media Technology Campus. Our plan offers a simple and bold solution toward achieving an active and collaborative environment while keeping the unique quality of its production studios and content creation a priority. The 3-story, 34,000 SF building will provide state of the art production, editing, and performance facilities amidst a setting that reflects KCRW’s identity, values and character as an independent, cutting-edge professional center for the convergence of media.
