Aiming to attract and retain the best talent as well as to be closer to the client’s West Village townhouse, Long Light Capital made the conscious choice to relocate from Park Avenue to a boutique building in the Meatpacking District. With unparalleled views on three-exposures and single-floor access, the 14th floor of this building provided an incredible blank slate for the client’s ambitious family office. Departing from the base building standard, the tenant wanted a stark gray and white palette that fit his personal aesthetic and to create a fresh and timeless office to last the twelve-year leasehold.

The layout directs an open line of sight from the elevator lobby to the east exposure. Partitioned offices and meeting rooms flank the north and south perimeters centered around a gracious reception and flexible open work area. The pantry becomes a focal point of communal activity with a central island and uninterrupted views to Midtown and Hudson Yards. The simplified material palette—honed white Statuerietto marble, sandblasted Carrara marble tiles, gray ash wood paneling, custom blackened steel office fronts, and white oak plank flooring—creates a restrained, yet elevated environment befitting of the client and his staff.
