RFR Realty engaged STUDIOS to provide full design services for the renovation and alteration of the 11th floor at 375 Park Avenue, a landmarked commercial office building in midtown Manhattan. Constructed in 1958, The Seagram Building is the only project designed by Mies van der Rohe in New York City. This icon of modern architecture was described as “the finest office building ever constructed” upon its completion and as “the millennium’s most important building” by Herbert Muschamp of The New York Times in 1999.
STUDIOS renovated the 11th floor building core, creating an executive amenity space that overlooks a new landscaped roof terrace on the rear setback of the building. The challenge was to create a contemporary executive amenity space that felt as though it had been designed as a part of the original building. All interventions were undertaken with careful consideration for the rigorous logic of the building’s planning system, the landmarked illuminated ceiling, and the elegant use of finish materials. New materials and finishes were selected to seamlessly blend with the building’s modern character. In addition, the executive amenity space features a series of bespoke furnishings custom-designed by STUDIOS.
