Inspired by the synergy created when varying industries and perspectives come together, Fortress Equity Partners called upon Spector Group to create a co-working type of environment for four of their companies, New Fortress Energy, Baby + Co, TouchCare and Drive Shack. As four distinct and established companies, each brought their own needs and requirements to the design brief.
The resulting concept features an open office plan, well complimented by the industrial character of this early 1900s loft building. Taking advantage of the architectural envelopment, the main design features work to accentuate the existing skylights, high ceilings and terraces.
Spector Group opened up the south side of the space by incorporating a large glass wall and sliding doors, complete with terrace access, brightening the space and further highlighting the views of Downtown Manhattan. Accent lighting and bright blue paint provide a pop of color and frame the skylight in the main boardroom.
The “open town hall environment” is on a raised platform connecting to the terrace and features a variety of seating options and a full-service pantry with beer taps, beverage refrigerators, snacks and bar seating.
Outside of the open core, offices and meeting rooms line the perimeter. Office amenities also include a fitness area with a gym and yoga room.
