Its new office, located in Manhattan’s Financial District on the edge of the East River, brings together over 200 employees previously split between two locations. The space’s open concept has a casual, creative feel that reflects the agency’s own brand. With a variety of meeting spaces and work areas, as well as standout views for all to enjoy, the design fosters efficiency and inspiration.

The historically industrial, mercantile and marine context of what is now the Financial District inspired the overall aesthetic of the space, including materials, finishes, and product selections. It also influenced the design of custom components, including the custom bench system at the office perimeter, as well as workstations with solid wood desktops and raw steel components.
