The New York studio is excited about our new home at Nomad Tower, in the center of a dynamic neighborhood in the heart of the city. Our resilient design is already a “future workplace”–a laboratory for new ways of collaborating, visualizing and producing responsive and exciting design solutions that make a difference for our clients, the occupants and the community.
We envisioned the New York studio as a learning lab–one that can both predict and react to behavioral, cultural, and technological change. As we begin our return to studio, still amid a pandemic, we have the opportunity to test our design concepts in real-time.
Behavioral – Flexible and agile, our forward-thinking design team created a workplace that will adapt to the needs of many individuals, work styles, and situations.
Cultural – Even before “social distancing” became the norm, we explored a studio design that could both preserve human connection and provide places for more isolated and focused work in the absence of a traditional office setting.
Technological – Our robust IT/AV infrastructure and resources support agile working while in-studio, and seamlessly transition to enable continued productivity when working remotely.
– Bill Harris, Managing Director
We faced many challenges in NYC, but because we designed our new studio to be an agile workspace that accommodates many different situations, it was flexible enough to meet newly recommended practices and protocols due to COVID-19 with very little tweaking to the original design.
