Shaping The Future
Our New York studio is ambitious and forward-thinking. We think globally, celebrate diverse perspectives, and are driven to positively contribute to the vibrant cultural fabric of New York City and the surrounding region. For us, expertise, research, and design are in a constant dialogue. We work with clients and institutions on the leading edge of business, education, science, and technology to test new ideas in an environment that values transformative thinking.
We envisioned our New York studio, located in the NOMAD Tower, as a learning lab–one that can both predict and react to behavioral, cultural and technological change. Allowing for flexible use, fluctuations in occupancy, and the digital integrations necessary for hybrid work, the design informs our discussions with clients looking to adapt their own office spaces post-pandemic.

Perkins&Will worked with client King Street Properties to create a flexible lab space that supports the needs of both commercial life science start-ups and established institutional clients. The success of this strategy is apparent in the leasing success of the building, including the largest life science deal executed in 2022.
“Design is not just building facades; it is fluid, an action and a process. It is asking the right questions and listening,” says Mariana Giraldo, Associate Principal. As the leader of the New York studio design strategies team, Mariana researches, collaborates, and distills project needs into one clear narrative. She feels most fulfilled when data gathering leads to synthesis, dots are connected, and information creates action.
This new office building in New York City’s Greenwich Village provides a prized amenity, private outdoor space directly adjacent to the office floors. 799 Broadway is a 12-story office building that Perkins&Will designed for Columbia Property Trust, opening in 2022. Our approach to Living Design focuses on the well-being of people using our buildings that includes access to the outdoors and nature. 799 Broadway provided unique opportunities to design private outdoor spaces for the tenants that proved to be very popular, especially as tenants returned to the office. The open, flexible interior spaces connect with generous, functional terraces that bring nature inside and extend the workplace outdoors.
