Joining two floors in a Manhattan office building we were able to segregate spatial assignments so that they better suited the adjacencies that are so critical in the day to day operation of an agency such as this.

Creating specific elements within the design, that signal distinctive typologies of use and focus, the results speak to a diverse yet unified statement. High open ceilings allow for the mechanical services to be exposed and give the open areas a spaciousness that feels expansive.

Working groups are defined by efficient bench seating clusters and separated by comfortable seating lounges. The space is sprinkled with private phone “booths” and small meeting pods that create intimate locations for more intensive discussions away from the larger clusters.
