Radio Milwaukee, 88Nine

Milwaukee, Wisconsin

Overview

RadioMilwaukee's expanded studio in a renovated commercial building allows the non-profit station to increase music programming, cultural outreach, and community involvement through regularly scheduled broadcasts, public tours, artist visits, on-air studio performances, internships, community discussion, and video production.

The two-story, 14,170 square-foot building includes a broadcast studio, performance studio, community space, equipment storage, and tenant coffee shop on the first floor; administrative offices, open workstations, and conference rooms on the second floor; and green roof with performance area.

The open-plan, second-floor administrative workspaces supports inter-departmental interaction and collaboration. The interior plan divides the workspace into two zones--one for quiet, heads-down work for underwriting, membership and finance staff, the other for open collaboration between programming staff. Abundant daylight and exterior views enhance workplace.

Sustainable Design

The building includes a number of sustainable strategies. Adaptive reuse of commercial building reinforces streetscape; urban site encourages bike and bus transit; green roof slows storm-water runoff and reduces thermal gain; roof-top rain barrel minimizes storm-water flow; reclaimed barn wood highlights interior walls and window trims; low-VOC paints, coatings, finishes, and sealants minimize off-gas; abundant interior daylight reduces electrical load; low-flow plumbing reduces water consumption; and re-used air-handling equipment and new distribution system balances air flow in response to building load.
