Upper West Side Penthouse in New York by Turett Collaborative Architects

Saturday, March 14th, 2015

rticle source: Turett Collaborative Architects

Fifty four floors above Broadway, with the Statue of Liberty, the horizon over Long Island and the whole of Central Park in view, this Manhattan penthouse architecture project offered extraordinary potential. The owners had a vision for the space – clean design, a layout with the most panoramic views, and the celebration of a unique collection of Asian art. Architect Wayne Turett of Turett Collaborative Architects (TCA) recognized that the new home had to be a reflection of the clients’ values and ideas and support their close-knit family’s style of living and entertaining. The client sought out TCA for Turett’s design sensibility and broad experience in high-end residential architecture; early meetings revealed a quick rapport and established the intensely collaborative design relationship that would prevail throughout the project.

ZENDESK SAN FRANCISCO HEADQUARTERS in San Francisco, California by Design Blitz

Friday, March 13th, 2015

Article source: Design Blitz

Zendesk, a customer service software provider, was one of the first tech companies to move to San Francisco’s Mid-Market neighborhood to take advantage of the city’s tax incentive program, and the first to sign a community benefits agreement. After experiencing large-scale growth, it was only natural for the company to seek an additional space in the neighborhood they called home. Zendesk’s new office marks its second building on Market Street, creating an urban campus that assists in the revival of the long-neglected Mid-Market neighborhood. The new building not only serves as a headquarters for the growing Zendesk team, but also as opens its doors as a communal hub for local businesses and residents.
