The Bloc

Studio For en tant que Architectes.

The Bloc is an internationally acclaimed “healthwellness” creative engagement agency. Its new office, located in Manhattan’s Financial District on the edge of the East River, brings together over 200 employees previously split between two locations. The space’s open concept has a casual, creative feel that reflects the agency’s own brand. With a variety of meeting spaces and work areas, as well as standout views for all to enjoy, the design fosters efficiency and inspiration.

The historically industrial, mercantile and marine context of what is now the Financial District in Manhattan inspired the overall aesthetic of the space including materials, finishes, and product selections. This inspiration also influenced the design of custom components, including the custom bench system at the office perimeter, as well as workstations with solid wood desktops and raw steel components.

Among the priorities of the design: inspiring creativity, fostering collaboration between the accounts-oriented and creative teams with ample room for a variety of meeting spaces, and leaving the views of the river and beyond unobstructed for all to experience. These goals were achieved by creating three distinct sections within the open office areas, which were further distinguished by being set at various elevations: raised platforms with offices and conference rooms, workstation areas, and perimeter meeting spaces.
