SKIM, a global consulting practice with multiple locations worldwide, came to us to support the build-out of a new 6,000 sf office in Hoboken, New Jersey.
To reflect the users of the space, we got creative and thought young—and planned and designed accordingly. Traditional workstations were kept to a small footprint, letting us plan the balance of the space in an open and flexible way to support a variety of workstyles. Since this branch office was committed to a “free address” approach to the space, team members can choose from traditional and non- traditional workplace settings as their “home base” for the day. Furniture, lighting, and walls are set at angles that cut against the contours of the perimeter, and generous paths lead to a suite of flexible break out spaces. We used online sources like Etsy and 1stdibs to procure playful vintage furnishings at an economical cost.
