This addition to Kimpel Hall on the University of Arkansas Fayetteville Campus is the new home to the School of Journalism. The central component of the project is the relocated studio for UATV, the University’s student-run television station that broadcasts live every evening, and also serves as a teaching venue for students to learn media production in a professional-level facility.

An efficient studio layout, carefully considered acoustic treatments, and a lighting grid that mimics those in professional studios allows UATV to expand its capabilities for live broadcasts, recorded programs, and music performances. The isolation detailing around the studio is designed to maintain and support low background noise levels so critical to recording.
