Oxygen Media Headquarters is designed as a dynamic, egalitarian office that allows a start-up, dot-com company the maximum flexibility to organize itself in constantly varying ways around an evolving set of tasks. Although the overall design accommodates a variety of office types, ranging from open to closed, the majority of employees work at open flexible “zipper stations.” These not only carry the required services, including wiring and cabling, throughout the space, but they also house individual and company-wide storage. Desks in the open allow people to enjoy the light, space and air that first attracted Oxygen to the two-story, loft-like, former cookie factory in Manhattan’s Chelsea district.
