STUDIOS was approached by a multimedia publishing and broadcasting corporation to design their New York office. The new space spans the top two full floors at 685 Third Avenue, with the top floor housing executives who were relocated from Chicago and support teams on the floor below.
The client wanted to create a warm and inviting atmosphere, and the use of curved walls softens the aesthetic. The highlighted design elements include the sound domes custom designed by STUDIOS for the space. They surround small seating groups with a television for viewing media. Each dome emits sound targeted toward the users in each “living space” to prevent sound pollution of the rest of the floor.
STUDIOS created a transparent office environment by arranging glass fronted offices and conference rooms along the perimeter, while creating a comfortable and spacious arrangement on the interior with ample daylighting. Both floors have pantries, sound dome clusters, and many small meeting areas.
