To renovate the Real Estate practice group’s workplace at 60 State Street, Gensler devised a new planning approach to address the building’s challenging floor plates. Rather than reflect the odd angles of the building, the interior support spaces are oriented to optimize a sense of openness and facilitate interaction. Perimeter offices feature frosted sidelights to bring more light into the workplace and yet retain a sense of privacy. Common spaces connote a clean, contemporary aesthetic that is linked to the long history of the firm with dark wood accents. Partners personalized their workplace by selecting their own furniture for private offices.
