Formerly a manufacturing neighborhood, Hudson Square is now attracting technology and media companies like Google, Squarespace, and Disney at a breakneck clip. A+I was asked to transform three building lobbies and adjacent underutilized real estate into hospitality forward, amenity-rich spaces where tenants and guests can relax, take an informal meeting, or grab a coffee and conduct business on the go.
The lobby has traditionally been a space linking point A to point B, but the cadence and ritual around work has changed dramatically in the last decade. Rather than pass-throughs in the morning and evening, A+I designed productive spaces that act as social activators, lending value to the buildings in which they are placed.
