1. Carolina Herrera Atelier

Architecture Plus Information

Carolina Herrera‘s timeless elegance was successfully translated into this Manhattan showroom and atelier, adopting textures, furnishings, and finishes typically associated with home surroundings and adapting them for use in a dynamic office.

2. Marshall’s Landing

Architecture Plus Information

Marshall’s Landing is located at the top of the MART’s Grand Stair. This lounge and restaurant facility was created by Architecture Plus Information, who also came up with the name, branding, and an entirely new service model based on a new technology called KallpodTM, which allows patrons to summon service employees using proprietary technology. It’s a location where the lines between lobby, bar, restaurant, meeting, and workstation are blurred.

3. Equinox Headquarters

Architecture Plus Information

Equinox tasked Architecture Plus Information with creating an upgraded, holistic office environment worthy of its illustrious brand. The company’s first big relocation since its founding in New York City thirty years ago is the 117,000 square foot space. The new office is located in the same building as the company’s largest fitness club and first Equinox Hotel, and it houses the company’s executive, marketing, design, construction, and operations.

4. Horizon Media

Architecture Plus Information

Architecture Plus Information was tasked with creating new locations for employees to relax, work away from their desks, train, and learn new skills for our most recent project with Horizon Media. The different program aspects, which are connected by a great central linking stair, communicate to one of Horizon’s core values: business is personal.

5. Squarespace Portland

Architecture Plus Information

Architecture Plus Information‘s design for Squarespace’s 25K Sq/Ft Portland office mirrors the design intent and spatial gestures of the firm’s Global Headquarters in New York City. The challenge? Translate the brand’s identity into a highly functional, elegant workplace that represents the same sophistication as the company’s product. Architecture Plus Information sought to create an environment in which creativity, comfort, and collegiality coexisted, allowing employees to work in either focused or collaborative styles.

6. Midtown Fund Management Office

Architecture Plus Information

For this fund management company, Architecture Plus Information designed two floors with a unique challenge presented by the addition of a thirty-foot light installation by the renowned artist James Turrell. We worked with the client to develop a program that allowed for information to be out in the open but created opportunities for the intelligence and insights generated from that data to remain proprietary within the confines of private offices. Relatively minimal furnishings add to the open feeling of the rich workspace featuring white-oak flooring and white terrazzo floating staircases.

7. theMART

Architecture Plus Information

One of the largest privately-held commercial buildings in the United States, Chicago’s iconic Merchandise Mart needed a full-scale reimagining of what it meant to building tenants and the city of Chicago at large. Architecture Plus Information’s design reinvigorates and reconnects historic parts of the building and dramatically changes the way the community — theMART’s tenants and visitors alike —experience the building.

8. Hudson Square Buildings Amenitized Campus

Architecture Plus Information

Manhattan’s Hudson Square is a former manufacturing neighborhood now attracting technology and media companies like Google, Squarespace, and Disney at a breakneck clip.

Architecture Plus Information was asked to transform four buildings, their lobbies, rooftops, and adjacent underutilized real estate into hospitality forward, amenity-rich spaces where tenants and guests can relax, take an informal meeting, or grab a coffee and conduct business on the go.

9. Financial Services Firm

Architecture Plus Information

For their new Manhattan headquarters, this financial services firm looked no further than 55 Hudson Yards, a new tower within the booming mixed-use neighborhood west of Midtown, and the only one affording a 360- degree wraparound terrace.

The company’s CEO had three mandates when approaching Architecture Plus Information to do their new workspace design: consolidate all the company entities into one new space, promote collaboration, and create an inclusive environment where workers can “get out in the world.”

10. Canvas

Architecture Plus Information

Inspired by the company’s stated mission that “everything must always be surprising, original, and inspired,” Architecture Plus Information created a workplace to reflect this founding ethos while allowing for the physical and visual growth of this newly established company.
