The Grace Building - New York, NY - 30,000 sf: This center core building is now inhabited by an organic curved bamboo enclosure with internal cutouts and connections that allow clear views from one side of the building to the other. Maximum ceiling height was a constant concern and linear sconces were used for lighting against the bamboo form. Wood ceiling circulation areas either bleed into open office spaces or are clearly defined by frameless glass partitions to allow privacy where close to workstations. The stations have low dividers allowing views through the building and to the city beyond. Private offices exist as transparent rectangles integrating with the open office workstations while providing views through to the exterior.
