The Bacardi-Martini pied-à-terre is a colorful, vibrant space used by executives and their visitors. Casual or formal meetings can be hosted in open or enclosed areas that offer flexible seating and technology. Two terraces with stunning views of the New York Public Library and Bryant Park are also utilized for gatherings and working outdoors when weather permits. Our design concept was a simple yet substantial dichotomy: maintain the brand aesthetic and borrow from the classic library archetype. An important consideration was how to showcase the client’s impressive collection of art. Our team had to strike a balance between function, branding, and beauty.
