At Hughes Marino, we believe that your office space says a lot about your brand. One look at Bumble and Bumble’s corporate headquarters in NYC’s Meatpacking District shows that this cutting edge hair care company feels the same way.
Located at 415 West 13th Street in Manhattan, this eight-story space is nothing if not striking. With polished concrete floors, storefront windows, exposed ducting, and extraordinarily high ceilings, Bumble and Bumble’s space houses not only the company’s corporate offices, but also a salon and training facilities. And it’s all housed in style and sophistication, without being ostentatious.
The high ceilings provide for the perfect opportunity to showcase exposed ducting, which allows for greater ceiling heights. Interestingly enough, exposed ducting is actually more expensive than traditional duct work, since it is much easier to hide air conditioning and electrical wires above a traditional ceiling grid rather than beautify it with industrial-looking hard ducting. This extra attention to detail demonstrates that Bumble and Bumble is not afraid to go the extra mile to achieve a classy, timeless, yet trendy feel.
Hanging lights supplement the bright natural light that floods the space from giant windows overlooking the Hudson River. These dreamy lights were designed to inspire creativity with their ethereal appearance. They are great on the eyes too, and much better for a long day at the computer than standard office lighting.
The furniture selected for Bumble and Bumble’s space is much more than functional. Brightly colored, sleek and modern, the furniture serves as art, while also serving as a clever way to break up space. This removes the need for extra walls so that the fluid, open feel of the space remains intact.
How to Get the Look in San Diego
The industrial-meets-cozy look can be obtained in many downtown San Diego high rises, and there are a few unique low rises that already have the bones in place. Looking for some of the highest ceilings in town? Check out the penthouse of 550 West C Street (AKA 550 Corporate Center) for 30+ foot high ceilings. The high ceilings makes for a very grand entrance – not to mention the 180 degree unobstructed San Diego Bay views.
