A New York City-based architecture office has relocated its headquarters to a historic building in Manhattan.
Who is involved?
Where is this happening?
Tribeca neighborhood, Manhattan, New York City
What is this new building like?
The 95-year-old building is located deep in the heart of the historic neighborhood and is within walking distance to numerous coffee shops, restaurants, and transportation stops.

The team has opted to craft an open floor plan sporting a minimalist design with space for 30 individual workstations, a conference room, a communal kitchen, a library, and a wellness room.
How is the new space COVID compliant?
MBH will require face coverings at all times within the office, and stringent cleaning practices will be employed in conjunction with other policies and procedures as recommended by the city.
