Pittsburgh’s own Fred Rogers Productions (FRP) recently relocated to the SouthSide Works neighborhood to a workspace that is both practical and cost-effective while fostering creative inspiration important to the company’s mission of providing quality entertainment for children and their families.


Designed with Pittsburgh’s R3A Architecture and Workscape, the new office environment takes its inspiration from FRP’s multiple hit series and features elements that mimic the look and feel of an actual neighborhood. Inside, there are splashes of bold colors throughout, including furniture in playful hues; a plaid couch that pays homage to the one in Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood (MRN); and colorful carpeted walkways and different colored doors, inspired by the Mexican War Streets of Pittsburgh’s North Side. The light-filled space was designed to strike a perfect balance between practical and whimsy. People-focused with accessibility in mind and room for growth, the warm and welcoming new space facilitates safe collaboration with a touch of playfulness as people return to the office on a more regular basis.


The company headquarters fits seamlessly into the revamped SouthSide Works space, which touts a community-driven environment. Fred Rogers Productions will participate in a fall celebration held at SouthSide Works outside on the town square area on Saturday, Oct. 22, highlighted by a special screening of several FRP series, beginning at 5:30 PM. Halloween episodes from Donkey Hodie and Alma’s Way will be shown along with content from the Emmy-winning Daniel Tiger’s Neighborhood. A fall-themed event for Pittsburgh area families, featuring a pumpkin patch, face-painting, and more, will take place leading up to the screening. The proceeds of the pumpkin patch will benefit Pittsburgh’s Strong Women Strong Girls.
