Design Challenges

Located on a high floor of a NYC office building, the small office footprint posed a significant challenge to creating a Meeting space and workplace that was comfortable and spacious while maximizing both the efficiency and flexibility of the facility. Privacy and acoustics were also a major concern; each space was isolated from the adjacent areas to assure ideal acoustic performance. One of the greatest physical challenges was to be able to transform the main space from a Meeting room during the daytime into a restaurant quality dining room in the evening.

Design Solutions

A custom-designed board room table was built to incorporate all of the audio/visual requirements of a contemporary conference facility. The wood veneer table-top can be quickly transformed into 3 separate dining tables by removing 4 individual panels in order to accommodate the program.

Multiple lighting “scenes” were created for this space as well as to accommodate Meetings and presentations as well as more intimate social interactions during cocktail and dinner events.

The space is defined aesthetically by the dark wood-paneled wall treatment, rich accents of gold tile and patterned wall-coverings, plush furnishings, and a patterned carpet that lend a contemporary sensibility to an otherwise classic lounge-style space.

The adjacent office spaces are designed to reflect the aesthetic of the Meeting space, offering serviced office facilities to Members for daily, weekly or monthly use. The offices are furnished in a contemporary style with glass fronts highlighting panoramic city views.

Original photographs from a private collection are featured throughout and rotated using a flexible hanging system.
