Tech Company Headquarters, Phase I, New York, NY

Collaboration with Lothan Architects and JS Architecture Design
Completed, 2015.

This expansion for an internet security company tripled the area of its NYC headquarters, 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 across the office, were introduced to best align the new space with the company’s brand. With some spaces expose the building’s infrastructure, and other spaces are highly finished, the office now accommodates a range of activities from the to meet the companies’ growing needs.

The first phase consisted of a full floor, 15,000sf renovation that will act as the front entrance to the companies’ New York presence. Working with limited ceiling heights, and leveraging the spectacular panoramas from the building, views were carved through the offices and across several spaces, both connecting different teams within the company and allowing visual relief from daily tasks. Sleek systems furniture combined with wood and fabric accents complete a palette that is both contemporary and warm, and improves the experience of employees and visitors alike.
