Provost Studio was selected to design the new FOX5 DC Studio Headquarters, as part of the 7272 Wisconsin Avenue urban development project in Bethesda, MD. The overall project consists of a residential and office building, with ground floor retail.
Fox-5 DC is the largest commercial broadcast studio project that Provost Studio has worked on in the United States yet, at over 10,000-square-feet. It officially launched on July 24, 2021. The project includes both virtual and physical studios as well as a main newsroom.
The studio includes informal presentation spaces and movable platforms, a performance area, a functional kitchen, and a main anchor area that includes an 8-by-22-foot curved LED wall. The wall splits in half and rotates around 270 degrees, it provides different ways to frame the shot and present content in the space.
The newsroom in Fox-5 DC Studio Headquarters features three main on-camera areas including an informal interview area, social media stand-up area and main news desk area. Within the main desk area, the main presentation desk spins and pivots like a turntable would, giving the director the ability to change the background by rotating the desk.
