Like many of its kind, the Yale University radio station is student-run and it recently was singled out due to its aesthetic makeover, conducted by New York City-based architecture studio Forma. The location of the station is within a 1930s building in New Haven.
The firm was interested in creating a bold contrast, while also maintaining a rather minimalist and functional interior. A skylight on the recording side of the room is a defining feature and it brings in a plentitude of natural light that illuminates the space. The project features a dual color palette—while the general space of the Yale University radio station is painted grey from top-to-bottom, the performance space is delivering a striking juxtaposition with a vibrant orange colorway.
