The project finds opportunities to build a community of office workers and visitors in corridors that are nearly a full New York Avenue in length. In what were previously only spaces for circulation between the elevator cores and offices, the design carves out shared areas for people to come together, to sit, to eat, to talk, to relax.
The space for these new uses – recaptured from underutilized storage closets and other obsolete and unleased parts of the building – range in scale from small and personal to large and social.
