american firm work architecture company (workAC) design for renowned advertising agency wieden+kennedy‘s 50,000 sq.ft new york office embraces urban density as its motto:
a minimal compression of individual work spaces that opens up room for a
gradient of diverse collective spaces. the overall architecture moves
away from the ‘office as a playground’, to put work back at the heart of
because work at wieden+kennedy is highly collaborative, workAC
designed the widest possible range of discussion spaces to accommodate
meetings and gatherings of varying size, privacy levels, and duration.
throughout, teams can choose to hold quick reviews standing up at 10
foot long over-the-counter blackened steel tables, have informal
discussions in lounges with comfortable furniture and natural wood
floors, or gather in the kitchens for working lunches.
more traditional meetings can be held in conference rooms that range in scale from smaller, intimate ‘phonebooths,’
to ‘picnic-table’ meeting rooms that accommodate up to 10 people to
larger, formal ‘widen-long’ conference rooms. glass walls create a sense
of lightness and transparency to the space. clusters of these different
meeting spaces are organized around groups of 20-25 people in open
offices, featuring polished concrete floors.
a series of larger collective ‘moments’ are distributed vertically to serve as the connective tissue for the agency.
these spaces open up views across the office through circular oculi
that create the largest possible openings in the floor slab while
minimizing structural impact. connecting the 6th and 7th floors, a
circular shaped, walnut-clad ‘coin stair’ features bleacher seating that
can accommodate office-wide meetings or informal discussions below a
spider-shaped structure that transfers load from a removed column.
