With the purpose of a consolidated workspace, the new BBC Worldwide Americas Inc. headquarters in New York City has been created by Perkins Eastman. The 40,000 square-foot contemporary office space encompasses one floor and epitomizes the open program.
The design embraces a cool, clean aesthetic awash in a backdrop of beige, grey and white with sophisticated displays of green and blue right here and there. There is not 1 sign of something quirky which is refreshing taking into consideration some of the more than-the-top, even garish, attempts at cool office style of late.
The reception lobby is expansive and attributes a curvaceous wooden partition which hosts a video screen featuring an array of BBC productions. Wealthy brown leather seating spans this interior, sitting in front of stadium-style risers. Across the room, a velvety rug beholds an arrangement of fabric-covered, modern wing chairs surrounding a large tufted ottoman. The vibe here is absolutely much more living space than corporate lounge which is downright inviting.
Another lounge-cafe is clad with a hulking white marble higher-prime table, surrounded by buttery brown leather modular booths and presided more than by a twin set of translucent crystal and chrome chandeliers…in a workplace–love it!
Resin ceilings and conference area doors add a definite layer of unexpected design, while also checking off the office’s sustainability functions. These components are 40% recycled, as are many other surfaces and finishes all through. Daylight dimmers have been also installed in the naturally light-filled space, making certain ‘round-the-clock power conservation. All of this ingenuity entitled this progressive office space to a prestigious LEED Gold Certification.
Desk banks are wide, open spaces, excellent for collaboration and concept-sharing. A conference room features a breathtaking graphic of a magnified zebra, while other work zones provide semi-private banquette booths with tiny white round tables. Lime-green and deep grey drum pendants float across this space, creating for a serene yet productive spot to feel and strategize. A social lounge of white and yellow sits adjacent to rows of shared operate desks, and receives a ceiling dotted with opaque white glass-bowl fixtures, bringing forth a light-hearted power to the company’s environment.
The BBC Worldwide Americas Inc. headquarters in Manhattan are a fresh strategy to edgy, modern day office style even though remaining utmost sophisticated spaces.
