TPG was engaged by the global human rights advocacy organization, Center for Reproductive Rights, to create their new headquarters in New York City. The not-for-profit client wanted a modern and comfortable space that favored a less corporate aesthetic and promoted their 20-year-old organization’s core values. As a not-for-profit, a tight schedule and a low price-tag were major concerns.
The plan features a mixture of private offices, cubicles, open benching, formal and informal conference spaces, and breakout rooms for meetings and collaborative work. A flex-sized conference room can be expanded to accommodate large groups for presentations. A collaborative café and a hospitable reception area provide comfortable alternative environments. Our designers were able to tone down the “corporate” feel of the space by installing residential pendant light fixtures and changing ceiling heights throughout to create the impression of smaller spaces within larger open areas. Soft seating and carpeting add to the residential aesthetic. Our Branding Studio was engaged to design environmental graphics indicating the organization’s mission and values.
