Commercial Space in NYC
The building, originally, was purchased for a radio promotion company specialized in marketing, promotion and artist development.
At the top floor, Cecilia Dupire design a flexible, multi-use space to promote creativity, team unity and proficiency. To be able to modify from a professional environment to a more relaxed vibe, while retaining relevance to both. Needed for a wide range events, transformation had to be easy, fast and seamlessly, while retaining functionality.
“We created walls that could serve many functions: a mix of magnet and dry erase as well as rolling boards that could reconfigure the space instantly. The interior was opened up by removing old partition walls and the use of lighting fixtures to maximize the architectural details and further exaggerate the spaciousness by using a variety of lighting effects. The street-facing wall of windows is the focal point of the interior. To enhance the communication between the inside and outside spaces, we gave the terrace a stronger identity using a lot of greenery. The different volumes give the environment interest. An artificial lawn was placed to turn the space into a more embracing space and offer a bit of texture.”
The skylight on the terrace was turned into a light feature/sculpture, and around it, a bar, which maximizes otherwise lost space. This is the focal point of the entire terrace, especially when combined with dramatic lighting, which gives the area a dynamic energy.
