New Republic

Collaborating with architect, thread collective, and interior design firm, Dan Fink Studio, the Essential Design + Build team recently completed a new working environment for a national media company that feels residential, rooted in history and libraries, and of thing old and new.

Located in a landmark office building on Union Square, the offices provide expansive views of the cityscape. Glass and steel bookcases, fabricated by Jens Veneman Fabrications, were used as wall partitions to allow for light and openness. In selecting materials, the design teams aimed to balance both vintage and modern ingredients in oil-rubbed bronze, brass, painted steel, and walnut.

“It was an exciting challenge to be the first to transform this first floor-through space in an aggressive amount of time,” said Rich Hiler, President of Essential Design + Build, who was pleased to deliver the completed space in 16 weeks from commencement.
