Designing Wellness-Centric Workspaces at 780 Third Avenue

Nuveen tasked MKDA with designing prebuilt suites, common areas, marketing plans, and turnkey spaces at the newly redeveloped and rebranded “The Gardens” at 780 Third Avenue. The project team created a new building standard at the 50-story building, which is centered on wellness and highlights the post-pandemic need for nature, greenery, light, and air. The team created flexible layout options that include a balanced mixture of open plan workstations, private offices, meeting rooms, and in-demand support spaces such as pantries, soft seating areas, and wellness rooms.

Elevating Aesthetics and Functionality

Aesthetically, the elevated prebuilt units possess a boutique, hospitality-inspired feel and incorporate a bright and neutral palette, warm wood finishes, and rich bronze accents. The fully furnished 15th floor suite, in particular, features a bespoke reception desk with a fluted wood base and black marble surface, plush furniture, and a variety of hand-selected tables and casegoods.
