BlackRock Headquarters: Best of Year Winner
BlackRock's new workplace, which wins the “Extra Large Corporate Office” category, unites its NYC employees under one roof for the first time. Soft curves, sweeping forms and an attention to craft and detail create a calming backdrop for employee collaboration. The design showcases a simple, refined materials palette of warm woods and a gentle reflection of nature's blues, greens and ochres.
Warner Bros. Second Century: Best of Year Honoree
Warner Bros. Second Century is an Honoree in the "Large Creative Office" category. The workplace brings WB’s universe of creative makers together through dynamic color palettes, bold textures, vibrant materials and soft finishes inspired by the biomes of Southern California, creating a series of film-like vignettes. Encouraging serendipitous discovery, each floor hosts alternative work zones, from a “hero-villain” wall that showcases hundreds of hand-painted action figures to a sky lounge with thousands of Harry Potter wands suspended from the ceiling.
325 Binney Street: Best of Year Honoree
325 Binney Street, an ultra-sustainable lab building developed by Alexandria Real Estate Equities that will serve as Moderna's HQ, is an Honoree in the Best of Year "On the Boards – Commercial" category. The interior design of its grand atrium creates a light-filled collaboration zone with a crystalline prism wall and "veggie stair" that cascades upward.
