A modern insertion into the second floor of a mid-nineteenth century SoHo loft, the StreetEasy offices are as much about providing a socially interactive environment for a young start-up as they are about communicating the ambition of a successful business.
The program balances open work areas with intimate meeting rooms, while punctuations such as an integral bike rack and combined recreation/kitchen space iterate the unique culture of the company. A large work area occupies the center of the floor and is surrounded by a frameless glass wall, beyond which lie all secondary functions.
The dark stained oak floor and black custom desks rising from it create a physically dominant base that grounds the activity of the office, while the lightness of the white walls and glass panels create a feeling of openness.
