MasterCard’s Manhattan “Silicon Alley” office space in the historic 114 Fifth Avenue building houses MasterCard’s digital design group in a work environment that promotes flexibility, collaboration, and innovation.

The Longman Lindsey team met with MasterCard executives to benchmark existing office designs and interpret those for the Silicon Alley fit-out. In order to provide a basis of comparison against which the proposed new design requirements were developed, part of our work included measuring the privacy across glass office fronts in existing MasterCard spaces. Our recommendations on ceiling materials and coverage were essential to providing sound absorption. We also reviewed the base building mechanical design for new upgraded systems to help confirm sufficient noise control was provided.
