Hudson Institute is a think tank charged with challenging conventional thinking. In keeping with their mission, the Institute wanted to modernize their facilities, improve collaboration, and expand their outreach capabilities.
Reflecting the Institute’s culture, our design team created a sophisticated, welcoming space. Connecting public and private spaces, the ceiling element features a band of reclaimed wood that leads users through the space. Combining natural wood and stone elements with modern materials like metal and glass, our design team layered textures throughout the space to convey a sense of collaboration. This theme is carried into the centrally-located open lounge areas and huddle rooms. We integrated technology components and Wi-Fi into the flexible conference area to support panel discussions, events, and receptions.
Hudson Institute’s new headquarters is the linchpin in their ambitious growth strategy, allowing the think tank to expand their public profile and showcase their work.
