Sophie Fidler, one of our location designers, shares her notes, thoughts and inspirations behind three new workspace in Midtown.
Ah, Manhattan. Home to Times Square, the Empire State Building, and a few brand-new workspaces in the Diamond District. Above a jeweller on the corner of 47th and 5th Ave are Suites 306, 307, and 405: the Midtown triple-threat.
The building at 576 Fifth Ave used to be an historic boutique, originally built in 1907. It has since been renovated, and showcases weathered brick walls and cool concrete accents. Each suite was designed to highlight these features; the furniture had to be modern and sophisticated. These spaces are all business!
Since 576 Fifth Ave is a ten-minute walk from the MoMA, we had to throw a little art on the walls too. Three square prints by RK Designs are hung above a conference table, which seats 12.
In a small nook, a textile piece by Alyson Fox gives some color to a neutral corner. Good things happen when brick meets concrete.
The spaces at 576 Fifth Ave are designed to impress. Each can host at least 15 people, with lots of table-top room; sit down, spread out, and get to it.
Serious about work? So are we. 📝
