Estee Lauder Company

Location: New York

Clean, stylish executive spaces in Manhattan’s GM Building.

Ongoing space planning and interiors work at this major corporate headquarters. Projects totaling 235,000 sf include space planning and fit-out for offices, meeting rooms, training facilities, media installations, computing/IT, mailroom and shipping facilities, product displays and art installations.

The design creates a calm, simple yet elegant environment, based on concepts that could be extended through a range of spaces to create an environment of continuity. The intention was specifically to be more woman-friendly than most corporate interiors reflecting the company’s business and heritage having been founded by a woman and catering largely to a female market.

Calm, light neutrals predominate. Coffer ceilings with cove lighting create the sense of a higher ceiling and more airy spaces despite the standard office floor-to-floor heights. Spaces incorporate many high-tech capabilities and display components, the mechanisms for which are designed to be fully concealed to maintain an elegant serene environment.
