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.

Our Workplace — Reimagined

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.

Market Update
Design that supports the human body, mind, and spirit.

Health is about so much more than physical fitness, dietary habits, or disease prevention. It’s about how a person functions at all levels—physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual. It’s about the brain’s and body’s response to the physical environment, and how that response influences a person’s quality of life. We’re focused on making people’s lives better—holistically—by designing places that promote well-being from the inside out.

Innolabs Raises the Bar

Located in Long Island City, InnoLabs is a life sciences facility that proves aging commercial buildings can be re-purposed for modern and highly technical functions, incorporating specialized systems and uses while blending new elements with old.

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.

Workplace Design Spotlight
Designing for the Human Experience

The new workplace is human centric. It’s about creating a meaningful, experience-driven, resilient workplace… A place where people want to be. A dynamic and responsive environment engages the physical, emotional, intellectual, and aspirational needs of its users.

While the functional aspects of a workplace are ever important, amenities – service-oriented spaces that helps provide comfort, convenience and joy – are increasingly important to support employees dynamic needs throughout the day. From dining areas, fitness centers, and outdoor seating to on site day-care, wellness spaces, and more, amenities transform a workplace into a multi-faceted destination. At Perkins&Will, we recognize the importance of designing an ecosystem that provides employees with amenities that help them not only work their best, but also live their best.
