Lucy Harris Studio Invests in a Classic Look for a Financial Services Headquarters

When a financial services company needed new offices in Greenwich, Connecticut, its executives wanted the design to embody the firm’s focus on developing long-term client relationships. The headquarters’ ambience, they decided, should not only continue to look fresh as those relationships matured, but also include nods to hospitality to make clients in a jittery financial market feel comfortable.

“The architect, Dan Radman, had developed a layout that fostered a strong connection between reception and the board room and another conference room, which are client-centered spaces,” says Lucy Harris, principal of her eponymous design firm. Her team polished up the 10,850 square feet with investment pieces that include Charlotte Perriand sconces and concrete side tables by Francesco Balzano

Executive offices line the perimeter, with open workstations within, all in what Harris calls “a high-contrast palette of white walls, dark furniture, and architectural elements as it felt fresh, clean, and dramatic.” And just in case the pantry and conference rooms are full, private lounge areas are carved out by slatted walls next to reception. “They open up and connect spaces by giving views and light,” Harris says, two qualities any client might appreciate.

Mohawk Group recently unveiled their brand-new showroom in NYC. Located in a former textile factory in historic Chelsea, the 13,000-square-foot space was designed by Gensler and incorporates LEED and WELL Building Standard qualifications, fully expressing Mohawk’s company ethos: Believe in better.

“Coming from our manufacturing and textile background, this building really spoke to us,” explains Jackie Dettmar, VP of commercial design and product development. “It feels like this is home. It’s part of our history and part of Mohawk.”

Flooded with natural light, the showroom embraces an open plan with inviting work and meeting spaces, versatile product displays, a working sample library, a materials education lab, and an open area for events and training. Herbs and other flora sit in simple planters along the window, exemplifying the company’s commitment to biophilia and healthy design.

Interior Design editor in chief Cindy Allen took a tour of the space on Facebook. “It seems to me that these days projects have to be functional, beautiful, technical, sustainable, and now with WELL, good for the people working there,” she said. “When I’m walking through this space, I feel really good.”
