American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA), the largest member association for accounting professionals, hired FOX Architects to design their office in New York City, after we had designed their DC office. AICPA wanted this space to represent the association’s established, global reputation with a sophisticated look and feel. They also wanted to support innovation and collaboration with tech-oriented work solutions.
Communicating AICPA’s innovative and collaborative culture, we created dynamic forms and volumes through angles in the floorplan and walls. These angles maximize views of Central Park and create collaborative spaces nestled along a connecting promenade. Adjacent to the promenade is a large board room, breakout space, open huddle areas, and flexible conferencing facilities with a catering kitchen. This section of the office welcomes guests and board members for multimodal events and work sessions. Technology is integrated throughout the entire office, including built-in screens with A/V in the custom board room table, in huddle areas and touchdown spaces, and a video wall in the reception. Our furniture solutions allow maximum flexibility, as everything is movable, including partitions, white board, and screens.
AICPA’s New York City office embodies the sophistication and innovation of an established professional organization. A custom, large-scale map displays AICPA’s global reach, while dynamic forms and volumes in the architecture signal a culture of innovation and leadership.
