The International Planned Parenthood Federation’s Western Hemisphere Region (IPPF/WHR) retained our office to design their new headquarters in New York City. We created an “inside out” layout for the 19,000 square foot office to foster collaboration. Each department has an open workspace with ample windows; inboard of these light-filled plazas we placed glass-enclosed meeting rooms and private offices. Our neutral color palette accented with bold details highlights the organization’s signature colorful infographic posters and books that are on display.

In keeping with IPPF/WHR’s sustainable agenda, our design is LEED Silver Certified for Commercial Interiors.
