Spacesmith’s challenge was to design a space that functionally met the needs of its software designer users, and reflected a restrained and timeless aesthetic. The open floor plan is located between two expanses of window walls which provide the best views. Ten foot corridors along these walls with wood slat ceilings are provided with high back lounge seat groupings that provide acoustic privacy so that staff can have informal meetings and make personal calls.
Amenities provided include multiple glass-enclosed meeting rooms, a café, and a creative room. The few offices in the space have glass fronts to encourage accessibility between leadership and staff. The design palette of the space consists of light neutral colors with touches of vibrant color in the café and creative room. The 49th floor floor plate enjoys views on three sides of New York City all the way to the Statue of Liberty.
