Back to old style and more drama for McCann’s offices in NY renovated by Gensler and Tom Dixon.

McCann_Office-01 The advertising agency McCann Erickson is one hundred years, and to celebrate they have completely renovated their HQ in New York, situated on the 23rd to 27th floors of 622 Third Avenue. They wanted more drama and personality; a design inspired by the classic world of advertising that they helped to build. And this is exactly what they got from the design studio Gensler and British designer Tom Dixon.
McCann_Office-02Gensler was mainly in charge of the re-design of floors 23 to 26, transforming them into a stylish yet versatile workplace with improved space efficiency. It accommodates a great variety of atmospheres including the team work and chill out areas as well as comfortable meeting rooms.

With this in mind, some of the spaces were designed to be used for small gatherings to entertain clients by night.

McCann_Office-10 McCann_Office-11The former cubicle layout has been replaced by an open environment, encouraging a modern and collaborative way of working. The space is now divided into various zones such as Central Park, a natural, informal and flexible area favoring communication and openness, and the Science Lab, an efficient, high-tech work zone. There is also an apartment, a lounge, a ballroom and a library, each providing unique and flexible ways of working.
