New York, New York

In a cross-town move, this global financial firm took advantage of the opportunity to create a refreshed, modern work environment while also rethinking its brand identity and culture. Through in-depth discovery, the firm explored trends, aesthetics, technology and amenities; Gensler’s Workplace Performance Index® (WPI) survey illuminated opportunities to help the firm remain competitive. The design breaks down the silos of the firm’s previous space through increased transparency, flexible and accessible meeting spaces, interior offices and shared amenities. To blend the firm’s rich European history with forward-thinking technology and innovation, the design incorporates many subtleties, such espresso bars for meetings and socializing.
