TPG Architecture designs progressive NYC office for LA-based law firm 

Sheppard Mullin Richter & Hampton LLP, a Los Angeles-based law firm, desired an in-building relocation of their offices at 30 Rockefeller Plaza in New York City. Located on the 24th floor of 30 Rock in a 30,000 sq ft space built for a prior tenant, Sheppard Mullin decided, having outgrown the space and eager for a place to call their own, to relocate to 54,000 square feet on the entire 39th floor and half of the 38th floor.

In an effort to better understand the Sheppard Mullin identity, TPG visited their LA-metro offices to interpret the essence of their culture and organisational spirit. Many distinguishing design themes were discovered and incorporated into the design of their New York space. These include a stunning reception area, visibility into the conference center from reception, a feature stair with a dramatic, contemporary chandelier, clear glass front offices, an exciting pantry and open interior spaces instead of narrow corridors.

TPG deemed their use of glass in support of a fundamental desire for transparency as very progressive and integrated extensive use of this concept into their New York space as well. A great deal of time was spent coordinating the mechanical systems, along with the use of ambient lighting and side-fed AC in the perimeter offices in order to maximize the ceiling heights. The result is an open, light-filled office with comfortable spaces that communicates the Sheppard Mullin brand.
