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.
