2019 Best of Design Award for Interior — Workplace: HUSH Studios
Designer: Inaba Williams
Location: New York City

For HUSH, an experience design agency, Inaba Williams focused on the experience of the office through its details, the most direct way to come into contact with the space. The entry to the 8,600-square-foot office in the Brooklyn Navy Yards was relocated to form a long axis that ends at a large conference room, giving visitors a chance to see prototypes and the studio’s creative work along the way. The entry is a 40-foot-long hall with mirror-polished steel panels above meant to reset the sensory attention of visitors when they arrive. Zigzagging glass walls and sheer red drapes meander around columns along the conference room’s facade. The room’s frameless solid door hinges at a floor-to-ceiling glass corner with pivots attached to the floor.
