tribeca based pliskin architecture — in collaboration with lothan architects — has reinvented the office culture at a technology company in new york city. the intervention is an expansion that effectively doubles the headquarter’s available space, and features organizational shifts that align well with the client’s branding. featuring both highly finished and intentionally industrial areas, the office accommodates a range of activities with various levels of formality. conference rooms, relaxed activity ‘hubs’, and open office desk organization come together to define the concept.
