CQ Roll Call, a media company, was formed by bringing together three companies – Congressional Quarterly, Roll Call, and Capitol Advantage. Following the merger, the FOX Architects team was tasked to bring consistency and clarity in vision to create a sophisticated space that represented the new era of this forward-thinking media company.
The inspiration behind the overall design concept was three-fold. Foremost, the design team utilized the physical space to visually represent the symbiotic relationship between the government, the people and the influence of CQ Roll on both. Subsequently, the new design enhances the work being performed by providing a vibrant space that inspires the multi-generational staff. Finally, the team utilized a holistic approach to the design by incorporating consistent design strategies and elements on each floor to signify a unified, fully-integrated organization.
In 2017, the FOX Architects team was asked to revisit and refresh the design to reflect the current themes. You can check out the updated design here.
CQ Roll Call’s space is sophisticated yet modern, and embodies the rich tradition of the political stage fused with the progressive nature of its multi-generational staff.
