Rodale Press
New York, NY

RODALE, the premier publisher of health, wellness and sports publications including Men’s Health, Prevention and Runners World magazines, as well as “The South Beach Diet” books, is completely redesigning their New York headquarters at 733 Third Avenue in the AIG Sun America Building.

Rodale’s core mission is “to enable and inspire people to improve their lives and the world around them”, and this vision will drive the design of the 160,000 square foot office.

One of Rodale’s primary goals is to have their new office environment reflect the company’s core vision; Suben Dougherty’s mission, therefore, is to design a “green” space that utilizes sustainable and/or recyclable finishes, materials and furniture to create a model office for a healthy urban work environment. This project will be submitted for LEED certification upon completion.

Some of the unique design features being planned for the space include a monolithic concrete and bamboo three-story stair and a two-story Yoga Room. Glass office facades will be a prominent feature, as the majority of offices will be located internally to allow the workstation environments, shared spaces and circulation to have maximum access to views and natural light.
