Brazilian based Rede Globo, or simply Globo, is the fourth-largest public television network in the world and is one of the largest producers of soap operas and distributors of world news. Globo called on Spacesmith, in conjunction with partner firm Davis Brody Bond, to expand their New York headquarters at the historic 32 Avenue of the Americas Building in Lower Manhattan. The program focused on adding 3000 sf to the existing 7000 sf by acquiring adjacent rented rooms surrounding their current space. Conference rooms, teleconferencing stations, private offices and open plan work stations were added. The scope of the renovation also included programmatic and mechanical upgrades of Globo’s existing spaces.
