Project Description

This expansion for a technology company doubled the area of the headquarters in NYC, and allowed them to reinvent their office culture in the process. Organizational shifts, from cubicles to collaborative benching systems and from formal meeting rooms to informal activity hubs, were introduced to best align the new space with the company’s brand. Some spaces expose the building’s infrastructure, and other spaces are highly finished, allowing the office to accommodate a range of activities from formal conference rooms, through phone booths, to flexible hoteling stations.
Leaving much of the structure exposed with polished concrete columns and a dark painted waffle slab, the open office areas use a grid of lights to enforce the order of the waffle grid. By using complimenting warm and dark materials, the floor infuses an industrial feel alongside minimal detailing, and distributes spaces for work, collaboration, and rest throughout the floor. A long table, partially suspended from the slab above and facing southern, allows for short meetings or landing spots for employees from the company’s other offices. The lights in this area are also elongated, and randomly scattered against the rigid backdrop of the waffle slab above. The pantry on the floor features a central bar made of recycled skateboard tops, and creates a unique piece in the center to congregate around.
