The Falconwood Corporation wanted to consolidate their operations from seven floors spread over two buildings, to a new headquarters on a single floor at the Gramercy Park Building on Park Avenue South. The 20-story Art Deco building offers large windows and high ceilings, as well as floorplates of 12,500 sf, ideal for Falconwood.
STUDIOS designed the space to house two main components: a commodities trading business and a family office. The new space is warm and welcoming, with wood floors, custom area rugs, crisp modern seating, and custom millwork displaying the family’s art collection. A pitched ceiling of European white oak slats adds drama while also unifying the open workspace. Private offices ring the perimeter, but their floor-to-ceiling glass fronts allow abundant sunlight into the workspace.
The project was fast-tracked to alleviate the growth pressures on the organization. Services included Programming, Space Planning, Design and Construction Administration, as well as furniture selection and specification.
