LatinoJustice PRLDEF is a nonprofit organization that uses the power of law together with education and advocacy to promote the civil rights of Latinos in the United States. They enlisted Gensler for the relocation of their headquarters to create a functional, lively, and professional workplace that empowers staff to champion causes impacting the Latinx community. The new workplace is a personalized, culturally rich, and functional space that prioritizes their commitment to their mission and the community they serve.
A gallery at the center of the floorplate features rotational artwork by Latinx artists and acts as a “spine” between the workplace and collaboration space. The gallery opens to a large conference room that offers flexible programming for meetings, training, and events. Adjacent to the reception, a smaller conference room is equipped for podcast recordings and video conferencing. Additionally, a communal table in the café space further reflects LatinoJustice PRLDEF’s family-like culture.
