When Squarespace decided to move into a new Manhattan office space, the all-in-one-website-design company knew that they wanted an environment that reflected their dedication to great design. The result is an ultra-sophisticated workspace that not only mirrors the company's values, but also pays homage to the West Village building's publishing past. The contemporary office design shuns the typical playroom/workspace theme so often used by tech companies these days, opting instead for a professional, multi-functional layout that fosters creativity, comfort, and collegiality.
Located in the historic Maltz Building, which originally served as a manufacturing and printing hub in the Printing House District, Squarespace’s new offices will continue the building’s communications legacy. To carry the torch properly, the company decided to forgo frivolous games and cool gadgets. Instead, the clean and elegant interior design scheme focused on providing employees with a functional layout that encourages both socialization and individuality.
As a design-based service, the Squarespace team was determined to showcase their dedication to form and function as a prevalent theme in the new space, something that is evident upon entering the building. What was once the print company’s old loading bay is now Squarespace’s vibrant lobby.
The elegant space greets visitors with art by emerging artists, including work by actual Squarespace customers like artist Emil Lukas.
