We were engaged for the design of Rockefeller Group’s new 40,000 RSF headquarters in New York City. Rockefeller saw their office relocation as a chance to design a space that elevates their work to create a more connected culture, driving increased productivity and innovation. The space needed to include an expansive common area, better technology and sustainable practices, reflect the legacy and brand, and inspire employees.
The relocation concludes a six-year, $625 million redevelopment of the former Time & Life Building, positioning the developer’s own headquarters at the center of the reborn mid-century modern landmark. Everything in the new office reveals how the company approaches design and development today, with careful attention to materials and architectural details that enhance quality of life through the built environment.
The workplace was designed around and for employees. It showcases Rockefeller’s design aesthetic, and presents that capability and brand experience to clients and partners. Hospitality elements include darker, shared spaces with comfortable seating, and calming scents and music in various rooms.
The leadership and design team took a place to come to work and transformed it into a place to come to work together. The space showcases how collaboration, encouraged and supported by the right design, can substantially improve productivity. A variety of meeting spaces were incorporated to support the new, more open workplace.
Rockefeller’s leadership team has seen a noticeable spike in energy and collaboration between employees, with spaces constantly filled with employees socializing, working on laptops, and collaborating with coworkers and clients.
