In collaboration with design firm BDG, Empire Office procured, delivered, and installed over ten floors of furniture for the multi-national advertising agency WPP.
Located in downtown Detroit, the historical structure of the building set a unique backdrop for various ancillary and private office solutions. Specified product was sourced from manufacturers such as Arper, Blu Dot, Gubi, Muuto, Viccarbe, and West Elm, to name a few. Our creative team worked closely with the client to provide options that met their aesthetic, style, budget, and delivery deadlines.
Other distinguishing features within the 150,000-square-foot space include a full café, gaming corner, open collaboration areas, private meeting nooks, exposed brick walls, original arched windows, vibrant murals, and custom credenzas created in-house. All parties were ecstatic with the result—a refreshed, mixed-use space providing ample room for creative liberty and innovative ideas.
Global media company Condé Nast worked with Design Republic and Empire Office to refurbish their multi-floor headquarters at 1 World Trade Center, resulting in a sophisticated and stunning space with warm tones sprinkled throughout the furniture selections. An expert in style and design, Condé Nast sought a workspace transformation that would fulfill the values and expectations of its young and diverse workforce. Steelcase FrameOne workstations aided in this transition to open plan benching, fostering an enhanced collaborative work environment. This project features approximately 30 ancillary manufacturers, as well as value-engineered options for additional cost savings. Condé Nast is the primary tenant at 1WTC, the tallest building in America, and Empire expedited the move-in process by performing multi-floor installations that allowed the client to shift work to vacant floors while construction was occurring on others.
