MKDA designed a sleek, bright space for Genco Shipping, crafting a branded environment that captures the company’s naval essence. The reception area sets this maritime theme with several glass encased model ships as well as a chair with decorative fishing nets. In fact, these model ships are on display throughout the office in both the main work area and conference room. The team also included a pantry with bar stool seating and a marble backsplash that opens up to a lounge area. The lounge has two navy blue ‘Heya’ sofas which is Japanese for small rooms, to provide employees with a comfortable, yet private place to either relax or focus. Additionally, a balanced mix of wood tones, linear LED lighting, white marble and gray furniture enhance the clean design while various patterned accent pieces bring color and personality to the space.
