FiftyThree, Inc, New York, United States

“Ideas begin on Paper”

FiftyThree is a space to create, a combination between work space, library, home and a forest. Honest materials and understated confidence. Under this creed a space that involved a very honest and open layout was created, promoting teamwork and collaboration. The selection of materials: walnut wood, blackened steel, glass, and concrete complemented by a couple of accents of marble became the palette to start drawing what became an office space that reflects the client’s pillars. In a very simple but organized way a variation of spaces were created, enhancing the everyday working experience, but also developing unknown or new ways of working. For example, the wood platforms in the centre of the space consist of an elevated space that has the function to gather people but it also allows you to have a different perspective of the space by the simple fact that they are elevated. At +ADD there is a strong belief that by changing the spatial perception other behaviours can be triggered like having a different approach towards the regular meeting experience, which does not only happen around a conference table. Both Client and Architect understand the design process, the concerns were the same and the input from them was always so relevant and nourishing. The result is a space that invites you to stay, share ideas and create the most amazing and well thought products.

Custom-made workstations were designed for the team at FiftyThree, Inc. The client needed a flexible design that would accommodate the different heights the team requested, be solid design and most important that it would reflect our client’s attention to detail and design. The palette used in the whole project is composed of materials that can be recycled in the future. The workstations were created under the same creed and were manufactured by local craftsmanship from Brooklyn in blackened steel and walnut wood. The result was a wireless workstation that added clean visuals to the open work area. The added value was a design exclusive for the client that economically was extremely competitive with the options offer in the market, making this design sound and safe. The office space is located in 60 Hudson Street Building, formerly known as the Western Union Building, is a full block telecommunications building built in 1928-1930 and was designed by Ralph Walker.
