STATUSCompleted 2016

Komar’s new headquarters are located immediately adjacent to the Hudson River, providing commanding views of the Downtown Manhattan Skyline. Located one block from public transportation, the new location is easily accessible to employees which allows the organization to maintain its draw on the Manhattan talent pool.

Open workplace provides ample storage.

The company’s previous Manhattan offices provided small cubicles with little storage, resulting in cluttered desks, circulation areas, and meeting spaces from materials and samples. The new space offers extensive amounts of storage for each employee and team, keeping the space neat and inviting for clients. The open plan work area also draws light deep into the building.

Design of the new space included a large pantry for employees to gather together for lunch. The space also doubles as a large, all‑hands meeting space for company meetings, as well as a training space. The build‑out features a large sewing room where samples can be made.

Supporting the design process. 

Break‑out areas offer space for on‑the‑fly meetings, design rooms offer ample pin‑up space during the curation of catalogs and other publications, and enclosed meeting rooms offer space to host clients and buyers. Workspaces offer extensive amounts of storage for each employee and teams, keeping the space neat and inviting for clients.
