bjarke ingels group unveils its new york headquarters in DUMBO, one of brooklyn’s most dynamic, forward-looking neighborhoods. the 50,000-square-foot studio occupies the entire block with space for over 250 employees on one floor and with plenty of room to grow. as the revitalized industrial neighborhood is situated along new york’s east river, the continuous glazing which lines the open-plan studio offers panoramic views of the adjacent manhattan skyline. designed and planned by BIG’s interiors team, the office is characterized by repeating elements which offer a coherent continuity to the sweeping, open space.
BIG位于45大街纪念布鲁克林和曼哈顿大桥之间。该社区由志同道合的创意居民和以设计为导向的公司定义。除了由 james 设计的9500平方英尺的屋顶空间外，还有一个用于聚会和会议的私人屋顶空间。大型自助餐厅通常用于全年的非正式会议和活动。
the bjarke ingels group studio space is sited at 45 main street, directly between the monumental brooklyn and manhattan bridges. the neighborhood is defined by its like-minded creative residents and design-oriented companies. a private rooftop for gathering and conference meetings, in addition to the pre-existing 9,500-square-foot roof space designed by james corner field operations. the full-sized cafeteria is commonly used for informal meetings and events throughout the year.
the lofty interiors offer space for the studio’s large-scale models and furniture mockups. a gallery along the south side connects east to west. this gallery is flanked on one end by exhibition shelves with the studio library for building samples opposite. the space is illuminated by a grid of 150 pendants designed by kibisi across the north side, and a variety from the ‘alphabet of light‘ series by BIG with artemide. transparent enclosed meeting rooms feature scoop-chairs organized by color, with hues ranging hot to cold. the visual continuity of the massive studio is further obtained with the use of three unique steel finishes — chromatized steel, hot rolled steel and galvanized steel — which are strategically incorporated throughout the space.
