Did you know we also specialize in heated floor installation? Fully schluter certified, we offer a wide array of heated floor options. What we have in the picture above is ditra-heat membrane with exposed coil. Tile is installed over this and the coil allows heat to flow through the tile.
Love this live wall! It really brings some depth and interest to the space! #Repost@archdigest with @get_repost
This month, @instagram opened its new 14th floor offices in 770 Broadway, the old Wanamaker’s department store, where parent company @facebook occupies floors 2, 7, 8, and 15. The second-highest floor in the 1862 edifice is absolutely flooded in natural light. Workspaces—shared desks—are on the far eastern and western sides, directly beneath giant, arched, landmarked windows, while conference rooms and public spaces are central. “If you walk the main axes—north-south and east-west—you’ll notice that you’ll always have visual connection to a window," says Thomas Kim, one of the architects at Gehry Projects, the firm responsible for the design. "In the middle of a 60,0000-square-foot space, you won’t feel like you’re in a cave, you’ll have a connection to the outside.” The aim is to get people comfortable and interacting, whether they’re at their desk on the in the common areas—where you find the coffee bar and juice bar and "bar bar"—while inspiring them creatively. “Frank [Gehry] promised Mark [Zuckerberg] we would help his team work more collaboratively and efficiently to do the work they wanted. To do that, the spaces would be about them, not about us,” says Meaghan Lloyd, who oversees projects at Gehry. The result is as open a space as you can imagine, not unlike a gallery, with pockets wherein creative work is showcased and, inevitably, ’grammed. And then there are the amenities. Any tour of the Instagram offices is accompanied by near constant banging. This is not the sound of nails being hammered home, but that of coconuts being opened—in which the fresh juices are served. Gelato—featured flavors change weekly—is reduced to a bowl. There’s the Thirsty Flamingo (a serve-yourself liquor bar), a rooftop patio, mini-kitchens, and a daily 3 p.m. "Cookie Hunt," which is exactly what it sounds like. Take a closer look inside the new workspace and it’s many perks through the link in our profile. Photo by @jonathanpilkington; text by @jortved
