A sense of composure, openness, and professionalism were mandates for the design of this downtown financial management firm. Responding to the high stress nature of this business, the designers worked to create an environment that promotes communication amongst staff and provides respite from the daily workday rigor. An open connecting stair will create continuity and connection between the two floors. An employee café/lounge area will emulate a fashionable city restaurant, and a fully equipped gym will augment with spa-like locker rooms. Finish materials of deep woods, cream plaster and elegant hand-tufted rugs throughout seek to establish a sense of comfort and richness. The entire space is being designed to showcase the client’s extensive art collection, lending cultural interest for both staff and clients alike.
