Following the completion of Cooley’s new flagship offices in Hudson Yards, New York; Alliance Architecture was appointed to create fresh environments across Cooley offices worldwide as part of a rollout.
The philosophy behind the New York design scheme of creating an inspiring, forward-thinking environment that would accommodate multiple work styles and make a memorable statement for both employees and visitors was a corner stone in each office design.
Isomi was commissioned to create a bespoke linear pattern in translucent solid surface, referencing the triple storey Light Wall installed at the Hudson Yards HQ, to be used throughout the Cooley London office. The solid surface installation served as both an aesthetic and functional addition to the design scheme, with the wall to ceiling application adding light to the lift lobby.
From the initial visual impact of the lift lobby porticos the bespoke pattern forms part of the design language of the space, used as large vertical stairwell installations and replicated with lighting in meeting rooms.
Isomi also fabricated a bespoke reception desk in solid surface with inset branding. Thelarge reception desk reflects the translucent pattern in its angularity while creating a statement piece for the open reception area.
