Global investment manager Cohen and Steers renovated their headquarters at 280 Park Avenue. The project included their boardroom, client meeting rooms, video teleconference rooms, and reception area. The project team, headed by LB Architects, included several members who previously worked on Cohen and Steers’ office fit-out, including the partners of Longman Lindsey whose acoustical expertise was requested.
Our work included a survey of the existing acoustical environment—designed by the same project team a decade ago—and used the results to develop design criteria for the renovated space. The inclusion of new technology was discussed in conjunction with the Cohen and Steers’ privacy and aesthetic goals to arrive at suitable design solutions. Our services included reviewing renovation plans with regards to partitions, door details, and finishes. We also reviewed plans for mechanical systems and equipment and HVAC equipment to provide a suitably quiet environment for the boardroom and meeting room spaces.
