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.
