Project Name: Midtown Office 3, New York, NY
Area: 1,900 SF
The concept for this office is directly tied to work of the client company. The work involves sourcing natural plants and fruits from various parts of the world, and importing them as ingredients for other food products. The origins are often remote and sometimes wilderness areas.
The main office space comprises an open office plan, housing workstations and featuring south-facing windows. Acoustically-private offices are visually connected to the adjacent space through a series of varied linear, vertical windows. When one looks broadly over the entire space, all of the openings in partitions are visible at once. Movement through the space creates an ever changing pattern. This shifting pattern abstractly recreates the experience of traveling through a wood as one might do when foraging for plants. This simple architectural gesture brings life and movement to the space, while extending the client’s brand to an effective architectural concept. Teak clad walls and rich colors underscore the natural imagery.
