Workplace Tour
PAUL HASTINGS

When global law firm, Paul Hastings LLP, moved to the Met Life Building in 2016, they embraced an exciting opportunity to completely reimagine and breathe new life into their workspace.

With expert insight from the designers at Gensler, the stunning Park Avenue office (the firm’s largest international space) celebrates Paul Hastings’ distinguished and diverse cultural attributes with stunning branded moments and a versatile workplace that supports the current and future needs of each practice. Proudly termed a ‘collaboratory’, the space provides an interactive space for sharing ideas and dreaming up new ones, for working across teams and firing up creativity.

Transparent glass replaces heavy walls and doors, letting natural light pour in. Plus, corner offices are out, and corner meeting spaces are in—offering brainstorming teams inspiring wrap-around views of the New York skyline.

All individual offices were scaled down, so common areas could scale up, enabling staff to work in newsroom-style, open-plan seating. And there is no shortage of collaborations spaces – many complete with bar seating, espresso machines, comfy couches and booths.

The super SMART office also features the latest technology to power up innovation. Digital screens throughout the space convey firm news and local updates and an immersive telepresence room, video conferencing rooms, and video phones on every desk bring people face to face with colleagues overseas or working elsewhere.

Versatile, dynamic and progressive (and a sell-out in 2018!) don’t miss out on a rare opportunity to look behind the scenes of one of New York’s most impressive ‘collaboratory’ workspaces, that reestablishes the benchmark for traditional law firms.

BLACKSTONE INNOVATIONS - SOLD OUT

Making its Workplace Week New York debut is Blackstone Innovations & Infrastructure, responsible for providing Blackstone employees and investors with the information and tools needed to grow the business.

The design for its recent 30,000-square-foot-office in the heart of Lexington Avenue, was to create an office that felt flexible, agile, and true to Blackstone Innovation’s creative culture and collaborative work style.

After exhaustive discussions and research into the fluid and flexible manner in which this team worked, architects M Moser created space typologies that would support their agile workflow, foster a positive culture and help attract and retain the best talent.

Functionality was key to the design. Blackstone Innovations wanted a space that felt bold and raw, but not overdone, which meant multifunctional spaces that can change and adapt based on the type of use. It also applied to the efficiency of use, thus all design is intentional and purposeful.

Operating under a different workstyle to its global corporate counterpart, Blackstone Innovations wanted transparency and collaboration to come through from an architectural perspective.

The design concept therefore features a series of neighborhood spaces that have traditional desks as well as open, collaborative areas and meeting rooms which encourage cross-pollination amongst staff. Aesthetically, a warm palette with raw and authentic touchpoints strategically placed throughout the space acts as a departure from the traditional Blackstone look.

The result? Blackstone Innovations is a standout example of a dynamic, flexible, and agile environment that fosters a culture of collaboration and provocative thinking.

Following the tour, the Chief Technology Officer of Blackstone Innovations & Infrastructure will join the designers and workplace strategists of M Moser to discuss design-thinking, innovation within the workplace, and how he sees work moving toward the future and technology growth.

MARKET AXESS

In 2019, fintech firm Market Axess relocated from 299 Park Avenue to their new headquarters in the dynamic Hudson Yards development.  The firm signed a lease for more than 80,000 square feet of space (three times the size of their previous location) across three floors in the west side’s newest boutique office tower.

MarketAxess’ exciting new move dovetailed with a new branding initiative, as well as a desire to reassess their culture as a successful and growing financial technology firm. In collaboration with Spacesmith, they wanted to create a workplace that would attract new hires and allow for future growth.

Extending across three floors and connected by an impressive open central staircase, the ultra-modern, open space is designed to bolster open communication and collaboration, two of the top priorities identified by Market Axess leadership and employees.

Through a rigorous process of internal questionnaires, interviews with leadership and in-house vision sessions with a cross section of staff, data could be used to ensure their new home would reflect the company’s history and brand in a contemporary way, whilst providing a modern environment for agility, collaboration and productivity.

As New York’s newest commercial and cultural hub, 55 Hudson Yards is defined by its indoor-outdoor spaces, early modernism inspired exterior design and exceptionally efficient interior space planning. The interior planning of the building was conceived after extensive study of the space needs of professional service, financial, creative and technology firms. It is one of the few office buildings in the entire city that opens directly onto a park and sits adjacent to a No. 7 Subway station which connects to every other major subway line as well as Grand Central Station.

Don’t miss this exciting opportunity to explore one of the city’s most impressive case-studies of workplace transformation.

SMILE TRAIN

In the summer of 2018, international children’s charity, Smile Train, moved its Worldwide Headquarters to a newly renovated office at 633 Third Avenue. The modern, 20,000 square-foot facility was designed to provide flexible, collaborative spaces where nearly 55 employees could carry out the organization’s important vision.

Under the guidance of Jattuso Architecture and B&B Contracting, Smile Train set out to create a space that championed a sense of openness with as much natural light as possible, as well as the flexibility for space division and future growth.  With the help of staff questionnaires and focused input from leadership, it was agreed that the new office needed to have spaces that could be easily configured to accommodate small team meetings, yet also hold large company-wide gatherings when necessary.

A flexible glass wall system with folding and sliding glass doors is used throughout, allowing the spaces to adapt while still maintaining a cohesive look and feel.  Organic workstations (with standing desks for everyone) encourage connections between departments and integrated technologies throughout facilitate coordination and mobility for all.  

The material and fixture palette is warm and vibrant, using details in key areas to create flexible zones for individual work and larger meetings and events, as well as a wellness room, all bridged by a vibrant communal lounge.   

Polished concrete, walnut and blackened steel details, pops of color and an open office carpet design based on a map of Smile Train’s areas of work around the world, all come together to reinforce the charity’s identity and sustainable ethos.

Smile Train is a workplace with heart – but don’t just take our word for it. Join the team for an exclusive tour on Tuesday, June 25. Book your ticket now.

BOSTON CONSULTING GROUP (BCG) - SOLD OUT

Boston Consulting Group (BCG) has literally elevated the concept of activity-based office design to new heights with a 193,000-square-foot office space spanning the 42nd through 47th floors at trendy 10 Hudson Yards.  

Home to more than 700 employees, the space features a variety of styles, themes, looks and finishes, all underpinned by the latest state of the art technology and stunning views of the Hudson.

Enlisting the help of expert designers, Gensler, to create a radically different work environment, BCG was on a mission to create an enjoyable workplace experience that would inspire employees to connect and collaborate.   Bold, large-scale graphics and eclectic signage decorate the walls, ensuring that the space feels dynamic, energetic and creative.

Championing ‘collision coefficient’ and serendipitous interaction, the office features numerous landing zones, two staircases that connect the heart of the six floors, and an array of flexible spaces to suit a multitude of workstyles and activities. The stairways have broad landings that encourage ad hoc encounters, and multiple stopping points throughout the floors enable brainstorming and idea sharing.

The 10 Hudson Yards building itself features wraparound floor-to-ceiling windows that create a sense of openness and space, while polished concrete floors and eclectic common areas offer unique choices of work settings.

During the design phase, BCG engaged all staff to assess the functionality of multiple elements of the space to ensure the effectiveness of the physical space, technology, and office services. Subsequently, the majority of employees in the office have unassigned workspaces, divided into separate ‘neighborhoods.’  Workspaces have minimal cabling and few fixed phones, and employees book both desks and meeting spaces using iPads.

The result is a productive “physical social network” environment where serendipitous encounters are part of the experience – but don’t just take our word for it. Book your ticket now to find out more.

IPG MEDIABRANDS

Most New York construction stories are all about the real estate, and most corporate headquarter moves are about reducing costs and increasing efficiency. However, for IPG Mediabrands that is only part of the story.
The 2017 consolidation of all three (distinctly unique) IPG brands under one roof (Initiative, Mediabrands, and UM), is a timely example of how physical space can be re-imagined to reflect all three personalities side by side.

Fast forward to 2019 and each brand now operates separately across three floors at 100 West 33rd Street, in the middle of bustling Herald Square, maintaining their own sense of identity and individuality. With the help of inspired designers, Ted Moudis Associates (TMA), shared amenities were introduced to encourage staff from different floors to interact; creating a truly collaborative vertical campus.

All part of the IPG family, each brand is bold, creative, and exciting – yet thematically unique. In homage to Initiative’s numerous beverage clients, a beer garden was designed, which, with its reclining wood benches inspired by the city’s stunning High Line park, offers a more relaxed work area.

For UM, a large screening room allows them to host more informal presentations to clients in a relaxed atmosphere.

As for Mediabrands, spaces were created where no architecture exists by employing everything from fur-covered chairs and plush daybeds, pink sofas, and wooden hand chairs to a giant ‘desk’ lamp and plastic pool side versions of Eames chairs.

However, beyond these shared amenities, the spaces represent a total re-imagining of the organization’s traditional office model that meets the needs of a technologically adroit and mobile workforce.

The result? A super smart, creative, highly agile and highly efficient workspace tailored to each organization’s unique culture. (Plus, the sky lounge, day beds and coffee bar are pretty cool too!)

In 2018, the world’s largest media investment management firm, GroupM, embarked on a strategic merger of office space for the network’s distinct brands (including: MediaCom, Mindshare, Wavemaker, Essence, Xaxis, [m]PLATFORM, Openmind), relocating from three separate Midtown offices into a new, 700,000-square-foot headquarters in 3 World Trade Center.

With support from expert designers from HOK, GroupM has created a space that champions increased efficiency into daily work practices, moving away from the traditional office environment of cubicles and fixed stations. The design for 3WTC was created with the goal of increasing collaboration amongst employees, featuring an open concept, clean desk environment.

GroupM created one of the largest open office environments in New York, serving as a campus model. Employees have access to shared space that includes a two-story town hall workspace, coffee bar, wellness center, game room, career center, tech hub, grab-and-go café, and outdoor terrace.

The design of the 3WTC space offers a creative and polished feel to go with the unrivalled 360 views of New York City. Workspaces and conference rooms are furnished with state-of-the-art technology. Enhancing the space are design elements like polished concrete floors, blonde wood, black accents, and pop-of-color accents.

By designing a truly agile environment in one of the city’s most sought after neighborhoods, GroupM has successfully brought its employees as well as agencies together in one collaborative space. GroupM has won at the task of bringing multiple brand personalities into a shared space, to give employees and guests a better work experience.

ABRAMS BOOKS

Returning for a second year to the Workplace Week New York line-up is popular favorite, Abrams Books, the first company in the U.S. to specialize in publishing art and illustrated books.

In 2017, Abrams worked with architectural and design firm Spacesmith to carefully select and design its new corporate headquarters. Abrams’ mission was simple: to reinvent the way the company’s staff uses space and provide architecture that speaks to its new branding initiative.

Using the Spacesmith design team’s research and location analysis as a guide, Abrams chose the ninth floor at 195 Broadway for its new home, purposefully acquiring a predominantly open-plan space that spans more than 40,000-square-feet.

The vast open space – which shares an industrial palette and style, with pops of ‘Abrams’ red throughout – is an excellent example of a vibrant open-work environment, complete with several private working rooms for small groups. In keeping with the Abrams brand, the space features a library with more than 600 linear feet of bookcases of blackened steel with raw oak shelves, as well as a series of hidden reading nooks providing privacy and additional quiet when needed.

On arrival, guests step into a glass-fronted lobby area, providing a clear view through to the library on arrival.  Further supporting the need for collaboration, the office features a flexible break out space sprinkled with lounging furniture, and a movable wall that can divide the space, accommodating very large meetings or smaller informal gatherings.

If you’re considering the move to an open-plan environment, Abrams Books is certainly a novel example! You won’t be disappointed by this best-seller.

There are countless companies based in New York, but only a few can say they are located in the heart of the city. However, among those select few is photography giant Shutterstock.

Often listed within the Top 10 Coolest Spaces in NYC rankings, the fast-growing, international image site relocated from the Financial District in 2014 to its 85,000 square foot space in the Empire State Building (after a $10 million renovation).

As with every choice they make, the decision to relocate the modern tech company to a classic building was a decision driven by data. By analyzing the addresses of our 300+ NYC-based employees, Shutterstock discovered the new location would save staff an average of 3 minutes of commute time each way.

The Workplace team also reviewed 7 months and 50,000 hours worth of meetings to determine the perfect number and size of conference rooms for the office — with options ranging from 2-person drop-ins to much larger rooms, allowing staff to be much more efficient with space.

And in true Shutterstock style, they infused a LOT of fun also. They called on the collective brainpower of staff to nominate and vote on the themes of our two game rooms (Alice in Wonderland and 8-Bit), help name our new conference rooms, design a secret library, and even select furniture and food choices.

Standout features include:

  • Wrap around views of the entire city
  • A boldly decorated reception room
  • An iconic 10-foot-wide staircase inspired by historic art-deco details ofnthe face of the building
  • Big screens showcasing beautiful moving images and real-time social media feeds
  • Upstairs meeting rooms are named after global landmarks, like the Pyramids of Giza. Downstairs meeting rooms pay homage to tech innovators like Steve Jobs.

But enough reading about it — why not come and take a look for yourself.

Don’t miss the opportunity to take (Shutter)stock and take inspiration from once of New York’s most exciting workplace locations.

DELOS LIVING LLC

The global headquarters of global wellness pioneers, Delos Living LLC, is located on the fourth and fifth floors of a 10-story tower in Manhattan. Designed by the architecture firm Gensler, the 19,000-square-foot office space houses 70 employees and serves as a showcase for Delos’ innovations.

Standing in the heart of New York City’s Meatpacking District, 860 Washington Street illustrates the best practices and the highest building certification standards available today.

The north, east and west facing walls are full glass curtain walls with views overlooking Washington Street and the High Line, a nearby elevated park.

The office features a multifunctional lab space to process wellness data from a network of environmental sensors (51 to be precise), an enhanced circadian lighting experience, an integrated approach to biophilic design that includes indoor plant walls and an outdoor terrace, and a full café with healthy snacks for employees and visitors.

This is a workplace that cares – and there’s proof around every corner. A digital display measuring about 6½ feet by 12 feet covering one wall show the indoor temperature, the humidity level, and other measurements of cleanliness and comfort with data supplied by sensors throughout the office.  Plants cascading from walls and partitions also help clean the air while satisfying our innate need to connect with nature (a concept known as biophilia).

Standing desks are everywhere, and a wide oak staircase stretches between the lower and upper floors, encouraging staff to walk up and down rather than take the elevator — all contributing to fitness.

Here is a workplace that has perfectly created the intersection between real estate and the booming wellness movement – using physical space to optimize health and change people’s working habits and behavior’s.

Delos uses the space to showcase technology platforms, design and operational strategies that optimize the health and well-being of those who visit and work there.
