MKDA designed a bright and whimsical new space for this boutique, Greenwich-based investment firm, which primarily invests in innovative start-ups from e-commerce companies to food and beverage and apparel brands. As a result, instead of devising a more traditional, corporate design concept, the team infused the space with color and fun patterns to create a dynamic work environment that is representative of the creative brands in its portfolio.
During the planning phase, MKDA established a balanced program of private offices, open workstations, and collaboration areas. Focusing on employee wellbeing, the mix of private and public areas was crucial to maintaining healthy noise levels within the space while also mitigating distracting sounds.
The team implemented biophilic design principles, including a feature moss wall in the shape and shade of the firm’s logo, to improve indoor air quality and absorb ambient noise.
MKDA selected a variety of geometric patterned wallpapers for the phone and conference rooms to bring elements of fun and spontaneity to these areas. Additionally, the firm’s branding color, green, was used throughout the workplace to add pops of color and personality to the space.
