Moved in the mid of 2011 from Tribeca to Chelsea, Grimshaw Architects office is now located in a typical industrial building facing the Hudson River and surrounded by the bohemian streets of this blooming neighborhood. The lobby, accessible through a farmer-style stalls corridor is designed by MINIMAL with careful attention to integrate a contemporary look to the industrial surrounding. The lobby allows access to the main floor where a kitchen by MINIMAL welcomes not only employees and professionals but also the light that filtering through the tall windows makes the kitchen a real gathering area.
