Empire Office collaborated with design firm MKDA on the new state-of-the-art office space for the notable non-profit client, Central Park Conservancy (CPC).
Upon entry, an open floor plan paired with biophilic design and large-scale park murals immediately greets guests. It reflects the client’s vision for creating a sanctuary and centralized location for employee collaboration while paying homage to the park’s natural beauty and scenery. Additional gathering areas include a conference center, huddle rooms, a full cafe, and touchdown spaces.
Throughout all project phases, MKDA and the Empire team prioritized wellness initiatives by selecting products composed of eco-friendly materials to achieve LEED certification. The Empire team led the procurement, delivery, and installation of all products and worked one-on-one with the client to manage a tight timeframe and drive cost savings.
Empire Office collaborated with the Miami-based team at OTJ Architects in the 20,000 square foot space for the national non-profit arts and journalism organization, the Knight Foundation. Empire procured, delivered, and installed the workstations, glass walls, seating, and casegoods in the thoughtfully designed office located in the heart of Coconut Grove, Miami. The space was primarily outfitted with Steelcase, while using a handful of other manufacturers such as Bernhardt and Stylex for casegoods.
This project was centered around the client’s priority of ergonomics. Keeping in mind the open plan and clean aesthetic, a significant amount of glass paneling and walls were utilized. The glass walls were intentionally positioned to showcase the client’s large, colorfully curated art collection that was arranged throughout the space.
The Empire team delivered a stunning modern space for this non-profit client. The two- floor project included height-adjustable workstations, break out ancillary areas, and a large reception space. The final product solution included pieces from ten different manufacturers, among them being Allermuir, Steelcase, and West Elm. The space also featured larger-than-life photo prints of some of the millions of people that Doctors Without Borders assists as per their mission.
