LOCATION / NEW YORK, NY
Slade Architecture was selected to design the executive suite at Jones Apparel Group headquarters in New York City. To create the offices, reception and board room for the heart of this fashion company, we sought an aesthetic that touched on the heritage, process and products of fashion design. To highlight heritage, we left the industrial shell of this iconic garment district building relatively untouched -- with exposed concrete floors and clean white walls for example. New furniture elements are introduced with a contrasting character that plays on textures, much the way fabrics are experienced.
A neutral palette of white, blacks and greys allows the ever changing fabrics and fashions that fill the hallways to be the main feature while providing an elegant, sophisticated backdrop.
