Dream assignment: Create a workplace with the same level of design integrity as the world’s most iconic office building.
A central and dominant feature of the space is the dramatic, double-height reception space that greets you. Unexpected, particularly in the context of a building of this vintage, it makes a stunning first and last impression for visitors and staff.
A color palette of whites, grays and blacks was chosen to resonate with the elegance of our French client’s high-end fashion advertising.
Clarity, intentionality, and purposefulness of spaces creates an invigorating yet calm workplace, while exposed steel columns, ductwork and piping allow for higher ceilings and add a loft-like character and personality.
Every material and piece of furniture was carefully chosen to embody the client’s high quality standards in the built form of the workplace.
Meeting spaces were integrated into the space in a way that felt open and natural within the overall plan.
Informal work spaces in the form of high counters and seating were placed to provide for impromptu collaborations or laptop work sessions.
A clean, bright, open and welcoming dining area is a prime gathering and informal meeting spot.
