The Creative Class: 4 Manhattan Tech and Media Offices
Manhattan tech and media offices pulse with the energy of the city.
1. Firm: M Moser Associates
Standout: What looks like a collage of original graffiti tags is actually vinyl wall covering, but the doodles on whiteboard, around the corner, are really by staffers.
2. Firm: TPG Architecture
Project: Arnold Worldwide
Standout: Orange bike reflectors, arranged as signage, introduce the saturated colors enlivening the raw concrete of a printing plant turned advertising agency.
3. Firm: Environetics
Project: HarperCollins Publishers
Location: Financial district
Standout: Upholstered in a Paul Smith stripe, Patrick Jouin sectionals pop in contrast with the painted steel and fumed, oiled oak at this five-level headquarters.
4. Firm: M Moser Associates
Standout: The kitsch of faux hunting trophies and a mini Statue of Liberty balances abstract elements, such as angled ceiling channels, at an office shared by advertising and PR agencies.
