Shorenstein Realty Services selected Gertler & Wente Architects to design their New York office headquarters within their newly acquired property at 850 Third Avenue. The 11,000 s.f. space benefitted from commanding 17th floor views of midtown Manhattan and included a 7,000 s.f. undeveloped wraparound terrace on three sides. Utilizing glass office walls, up-lighted coffered ceilings, white textured limestone walls, bamboo floors, and a back-lit acrylic feature wall at the reception area, the design takes advantage of natural light playing across textures, patterns and colors to create a rich, but restrained work environment. Multiple conference rooms with teleconferencing capabilities were included. Gertler & Wente Architects worked with HMWhite Site Architects in developing the undulating and varied landscape design punctuated with natural plantings, trees, seating areas and exterior sculptures.
