Fogarty Finger Architecture recently completed a New York City headquarters for Perka. (Perka helps businesses build deep, lasting relationships with customers over their mobile phones, by providing loyalty marketing programs).
The architects designed a duel-functioning workspace for Perka to utilize for both work and events. The office is located on the top floor of 131 Varick Street in Hudson Square, complete with a roof deck for seasonal entertaining.
The main themes for the space were collaboration, comfort and entertainment, designed to have a more inviting, residential “working-from-home” vibe, but also serve as a space to host events and industry meet ups.
Some of the architect’s favorite elements of the space are below:
- Bamboo flooring throughout the space create a more residential and inviting look.
- The Plaza room- the largest open room where all events are hosted. Roof access is available from this room as well. A full functioning pantry located adjacent to the Plaza can accommodate catering needs for events.
- Large windows for spanning views of 1 WTC and the Hudson river.
- Two entrances – one entrance for employees and one for guests. Guest entrance has access to the Plaza, restrooms, pantry and roof deck (all public spaces)
- Walls with chalkboard and marker board for creative expression or working sessions
