REMARKS Partner office size has been reduced by approx. 45%; Associates will work in open plan clusters in order to facilitate collaborative work and promote socialization; case rooms will provide excess flexibility for private or public use Library integrated into communal space

INSPIRATION: KIBBUTZ COMMUNITY Large central communal area incorporates shared support and flexibility, with potential for assembly, collaboration, and socialization; collaborative spaces help stimulate productive employee interaction

SOLUTION:

With the legal industry undergoing major workplace culture reform, it is imperative for the new office design to account for major trends in flexibility, socialization and collaboration. Using surveys of practicing legal professionals, adjacencies were established to streamline daily operations. Proposed programming changes allow for more public space to be utilized for high-profile clients and promote intracompany socialization. This mixed-use space will serve as a central hub that highlights the many facets of the company’s culture to clients, employees, and potential recruits. The firm’s secular roots in early Kibbutz communities underscore the brand’s most fundamental pillars: loyalty and long-term accountability. Imagery from early urban development of these Utopian agricultural factions will be utilized for conceptual study. Just like the early settlers who built the communities outward with their hands, the office environment evokes a sense of imperfection, as if spaces have been added on as needed. Rejecting modularity entirely, personal identity is established through customizable office spaces and work areas.

“Imagine a world in which every single human being can freely share in the sum of all knowledge. That is our commitment.”

CHALLENGE:

Design a new office space for the international non-profit Wikimedia Foundation. The office will be the flagship location in New York City at 41 Madison Ave. Programming should account for the needs of a leading media industry corporation while the design should reflect the company’s socially responsible brand identity.

SOLUTION:

Because the Wikimedia Foundation is comprised of a network of employees and volunteers around the world flexibility of use is paramount. The inspiration for design and space planning comes from the nervous system, a biological neural network connecting all parts of an organism. A central spine of dark wood running throughout the space provides all necessary resources for employees. The flexible design accommodates a potential spectrum of functionality, including smaller scale daily operations, fundraising events and regional conferences. Easily transformed spaces will mirror how employees, donors, and volunteers create a global community of like-minded individuals.

ARTSCIENCE LAB


CLIENT: A rt s c i e n c e Lab The cognitive science department at Occidental College is preparing a proposal for a newly acquired campus building located downtown. Their goal is transform the space into an environment that uses scientific methods to study how people process art in the brain.

INSPIRATION: FLEXIBLE LAB SPACE

CHALLENGE:

Research and develop a flexible program that addresses planned use. Create general design concept for space that helps illustrate potential interior. Renderings will be utilized as visual support in proposal bid.

SOLUTION:

Precedent galleries, the proposal itself and professor interviews were used to develop programming. Primary spaces include a dedicated student office, computer stations, and gallery space with projection screen. Users include the general public, students and professionals. Because of the limited square footage available, the flexible design allows for easy transformation for secondary uses, including classroom and event space, using mobile furniture. Traditional gallery layouts and modern science labs were used as a source of inspiration for design in order to evoke the fusion of two. Lastly, the maze graphic on the floor is used both functionally to engage the user and for branding.

CLIENT: 1 1 0 E 28TH ST 110 28TH is a multi-tenant corporate building located at 110 28th Street. Tenants include New York School of Interior Design and WeWork.

CHALLENGE:

Redesign the entrance lobby to accommodate the growing number of daily users within the building as well as to attract new tenants. Environment should provide a respite from the street outside and the office upstairs.

INSPIRATION

SOLUTION:

Like a birch wood forest blanketed in snow, the design aims to incorporate strong vertical architecture and a monochromatic palette to evoke dormancy. A semi-reflective wall paper has been designed to make the space feel larger and continuous. While the materials indicate the modernity of the urban setting, symmetry and repetition promote a sense of order. The overall environment, inspired by natural forms, aims to create a calming transition for users in or out of the building.

CLIENT: HOLIDAY

HOUSE

Founded to raise breast cancer awareness, Holiday House is a show house in a historic mansion on the Upper East Side. It has featured top designers in the industry, received critical acclaim and been endorsed by some of the most celebrated global luxury brands. Collaborating with Robert Allen and NYSID, this student design competition features up and coming designers.

JAMES WHISTLER

INSPIRATION

CHALLENGE:

Students must design a room for Holiday House using Robert Allen products. The winning design will be realized in the show house.

N

SOLUTION:

The holiday house showroom is a unique opportunity for a designer to create a residential space intended to entertain the general public. When thinking about the types of past spaces under similar circumstance, the extravagant halls at the Palace of Versailles and parlor rooms of Palladian countryside villas come to mind. Historically, many figures would use interior design to create an air of wealth and royalty so as to acquire higher status. The design of the space was developed with this humorous air of pomp in mind. In this interpretation, the featured “gold� are the products of Robert Allen. The eclectic mix of traditional, Persian and mid-century elements results in a modern day study that pays homage to its ancestral predecessors.
