Confidential Insurance Firm

Case Study


Confidential Insurance Firm
Location: New York, NY


A New York City-based professional services firm, situated in the financial district, aimed to establish an office space that not only embodies their corporate identity but also cultivates a positive company culture, with the ultimate goal of encouraging their staff to return to the office post-covid. They sought a comprehensive design and furnishing solution that would elevate the overall employee experience, enhance team productivity, and offer ample space for collaboration among their various departments.


RI Workplace played a pivotal role in achieving the client’s objectives including the return of their staff to the office post-covid. Our team was pleased to start the project by offering a comprehensive solution. We began with a project discovery meeting to gain an understanding of the client’s values, brand image, and functional requirements. The client then visited our office space for inspiration and ideas for their own office. Following their visit we provided them with a range of design options, incorporating modern aesthetics and ergonomic solutions as well as furniture options to ensure flexibility and customization to meet the diverse needs of their 150+ staff.


The new workspace has significantly improved their staff’s workday experience making their commute worthwhile. A large café on the upstairs floor serves as a central point for team gatherings and meetings, while the open environment has helped everyone feel more a part of a team which was difficult when the staff were working remotely. Numerous boardrooms and meeting spaces, creatively named New York’s five boroughs by the client, provide ample space for small and large meetings. Both the upstairs and downstairs floors have cafes and collaborative areas, including bars and tables to contribute to the vibrant and engaging workspace that aligns seamlessly with the client’s vision and values. Thoughtful design choices such as modern lighting, glass walls, wood beams, and a curved wall in the reception area, give the space its own impressive look and feel. While most of their staff now enjoy working in an open office setting, one wing of the office is dedicated to their executive team, featuring their own conference and meeting spaces and a special café. Executives also enjoy their own private offices for privacy and a cozy home away with home, some with a bird’s eye view of the iconic New York Stock Exchange and Wall Street.
