A definite game-changer, the NFL Headquarters in Midtown Manhattan are 6-stories of shiny and new modern day workplace design by Ted Moudis Associates.
Moving just two blocks north on Park Avenue from its earlier place, these digs are fresh, edgy and inform the NFL story with 4 themed floors primarily based on the association’s main entities: The Game, The Teams, The Fans and Innovation. The fifth floor is committed to the Officiating Command Center, which is set up with a plethora of tv screens, phone banks and operate stations offering a futuristic vibe. Other operate-play zones incorporate sprawling conference rooms, a modern cafeteria with culinary stations and full kitchen, fitness center with locker rooms suited for celebrities and a retail store just for personnel.
Dynamic, digital graphics play a massive portion in the energetic interior aesthetic, with hallways, back-lit walls and elevator banks depicting players in action, stadium charts and inspirational words. One elevator hallway is clad with an intricate mural of game tickets, even though floor designations replicate glowing scoreboard numbers.
The reception region boasts a sculptural silver football-shaped desk and rear wall replicating a huge HD flat-screen tv. Hallways, socializing lounges and meeting places are designed to resemble gates and stadiums, like a faux-grass carpeted multipurpose area with painted yard lines, an perfect spot to tackle organization targets. Attributing a dose of the League’s fame, trophy collections and championship rings are exhibited in museum-worthy glass instances.
To maximize organic light within the workspaces, the inner core of the floorplans encompass the offices, while the surrounding areas are kept for communal purposes. Grey, white and blue drive house the colour schematic across all floors, whilst chrome accents and geometric slivers of fluorescent lighting add gleam, even a touch of glamour, to this showcase of modern office space.
Two in depth terraces perched on the sixth floor function booming views of the surrounding cityscape, with one adjacent to the reception lobby, the other off the cafeteria for outdoor dining and relaxing in amongst strategic (function) plays.
The NFL Headquarters is an innovative, modern day office space with winning design and style, which most likely has garnered a fan base all its personal.
