Kuhn Riddle Architects, who designed New England Public Radio’s new offices and studios in downtown Springfield, won an Honor Award from the Western Massachusetts Chapter of The American Institute of Architects at a December event in Amherst.
The award was accepted for the design of the new offices in the 127 year-old Fuller Building at 1525 Main Street. The jury, comprised of four architectural professionals from New England, was enthusiastic about the “great new use for (an) old building” and commented that the “textures and rhythms are great with a lot of integrity and detail.”
The jury also appreciated the re-use of the building’s existing cast iron columns.
“This award is very well deserved,” said Richard Malawista, NEPR’s Director of Broadcasting. “Architect Jonathan Salvon and interior designer Sarah Nolan understood what we needed and wanted very well. They designed interesting and attractive office space and equally appealing radio studios that meet all our technical needs and can be very proud of what they created.”
