To improve operational efficiencies, the Solomon R. Guggenheim Foundation relocated its offices to a new space. The project brings together nearly 200 employees representing a range of the Guggenheim’s administrative departments, creating a highly collaborative environment to support its work and mission.
Designed by Studio Gang Architects, the full-floor office arranges departmental adjacencies into “Super Blocks” along a central laneway and places a strong emphasis on natural light, acoustics, and symmetry. The project includes a combination of open and private offices, meeting rooms, an extensive materials library, model room, canteen and pantry. Additional features include a generator-connected IT data center, a high-density filing system for the institution’s art publication collection, an improved heating and cooling design, and precise attention to acoustical details for both mechanical as well as intra-office noise.
