Starwood Hotels & Resorts Worldwide Headquarters - Starwood Hotels & Resorts Worldwide / HOK

Interior Design - Corporate or Hospitality


Starwood Hotels and Resorts retained our firm to create comprehensive new workplace standards and a detailed space program for their headquarters facility in Stamford, Connecticut. Asked to focus on collaboration and flexibility, we helped Starwood establish a vision for their ‘Workplace of the Future’ that reconceptualized their space and work methodology. In addition to the new workspace, our design for the headquarters included model rooms for the Starwood brands, design studios to work with franchisees in developing concepts, and executive offices and a conference center. Our goal was to create a welcoming environment for visitors and brand executives that projects Starwood’s company values while still capturing their distinct brands, like the W Hotel, St. Regis, Sheraton, and more. Through the creative use of lighting, material finishes, and graphic elements, our design captures the signature look and feel of each brand to create places in which the company may develop, refine and test new concepts to keep the Starwood brands in the forefront of hotel design.

Aegis Media New York Offices - Aegis Media North America / HOK

Interior Design - Corporate or Hospitality


Aegis Media, a creative communications company, asked our firm to renovate their existing New York offices and create a modern, dynamic space that reflects both the energy and spirit of their company, while also responding to their expansive growth. Working within the physical constraints of the existing, multi-floor space, including low ceilings and disjointed rooms, we created a cohesive design language that encourages high collaboration and fosters a sense of community. We developed flexible layouts with Aegis’s new company-wide standards for workstations and offices, which are more efficient and now tailored to reinforce the company’s creative work style. A central gathering space anchors the two floors and serves as a hub to receive clients, conduct social events and allow employees a change of venue from their desks. Aesthetically, we kept wall treatments and other finishes neutral like a gallery to allow the Aegis teams to seamlessly showcase and cycle graphic works within their spaces. Branding applications throughout the office bring in splashes of color and are easily changed as groups relocate within the space, supporting Aegis and its family of companies.

Weber Shandwick - TPG Architecture

Interior Design - Corporate or Hospitality


The Weber Shandwick space at 909 Third Avenue is part of a larger project for CMGrp, a wholly owned unit of the Interpublic Group, one of the world’s leading global advertising holding companies. The project consisted of relocating 10 corporate brands from four different locations into 9 floors occupying over 230,000 SF of office space at 909 Third Avenue. The new office design fosters and brings to light what the brands practice through creating an environment that allows for innovation, communication, collaboration, teamwork, and sustainability. TPG worked closely with each individual brand to give the look and feel of what each brand represents and incorporate their business strategy. Seen here is the space created for global public relations firm Weber Shandwick.

The Barbarian Group - The Barbarian Group / Clive Wilkinson Achitects

Interior Design - Corporate or Hospitality


The client, The Barbarian Group, is a digital marketing firm with a lively company culture that required an unconventional space that would foster energy and collaboration. We found the solution in the Superdesk, an endless table that undulates throughout the room, creating table space and meeting areas while uniting all employees on a single surface.

Arnold Worldwide - TPG Architecture

Interior Design - Corporate or Hospitality

A new office can represent many things: a fresh start, a new look, and also an opportunity to redefine a firm’s very way of working. This is the case for Arnold Worldwide, a global advertising firm founded in Boston and now part of the Havas Creative Group. Arnold retained TPG to design its new Manhattan workspace at 205 Hudson Street as part of a larger relocation to Hudson Square for several Havas companies. All Arnold staff now work in bench style stations in a totally open plan. TPG designed the new 31,000SF office to both embrace this open and collaborative style of work while supplying the requisite support spaces to make benching truly successful for the staff regardless of their job function.
