If you ever wonder how an office space in Empire State Building would look like, especially if it occupies a whole floor and it is designed for women’s apparel brands- here is one magnificent example created by Spacesmith and B & Co. The vast space of this office includes over 25 showrooms- multiple designer work areas- a fabric library, and a pattern making room, model fitting rooms, offices, lounges and a large multi-function media room.
The whole project is sustained in the most environment-friendly performance available. There are temperature control systems, low flow plumbing fixtures, energy efficient appliances, non-volatile paints. So adhesives used for the finishing works and also very efficient and clever system with day lighting sensors which automatically assures that the amount of natural daylight and electricity will be sufficient for the art work done in these office spaces.
The exposed brickwork, pipes and ducts, polished concrete walls and hanging Edison bulbs. They give to the space certain industrial aesthetic, but the austere emanation was required so that the products of the firm and its garment production, design, fitting and marketing can stand out. The designers choose to use a neutral color palette and hand-troweled concrete floors revived by some designer pieces of furnishing. They also incorporated the 12-foot video screen wall at the reception that displays the latest runway fashions or the state of the art telepresence room- to give the space its unmistakable signature style. So you enter into impressive double-height reception area and then follow through smoothly curved galleria of showrooms cleverly paneled with durable concrete veneer.
