After 10 years of dramatic growth, this Manhattan based real estate finance firm had outgrown its Midtown offices and sought a larger, more flexible space.
Our approach combined tenets of both modern office and contemporary residential design, culminating in an efficient, yet comfortable open work environment. A combination of private offices, open-plan work areas, and meeting spaces, the core of this 20,000 sq ft office is wrapped in dark wood, covering the walls and turning to create a dramatic cantilevered soffit. In contrast to the warmth of the wood, understated perimeter glass wall systems create office fronts and meeting room walls, addressing the firm’s desired combination of transparency and privacy. Distinctive furnishings were individually selected to complement the architectural accents of the space-Italian walnut for the executive offices, aluminum and back painted glass for the open areas, and a unique 30’-0” live edge wood conference table specially commissioned for the boardroom.
