NeueHouse Reinvents the Creative Office in NoMad
The ‘collaborative workspace’ is a trend that has been gaining traction in recent years as developers and companies seek to tackle two major issues facing businesses of late: the rising cost of office real estate and the need for a reinvented work environment.
A number of shared office spaces have sprung up offering their answers to these problems (spaces like WeWork and General Assembly), but none seem to do achieve a balance between collaboration and efficiency as well as NeueHouse.
NeueHouse, located at 10 East 25th Street in the NoMad District, targets innovators. The 50,000 square-foot multi-level facility offers its members conference rooms, private screening rooms, a cafe and a full-capability production studio. The studio features high-end video and audio recording equipment, a green-screen wall and a tap into BBC and CNN’s The Switch Network-perfect for TV interviews.
The building has a chic David Rockwell-designed Bohemian-meets-modern decor complete with chandeliers, leather couches, sleek glass walls, pop art paintings and work from some of the nation’s leading contemporary sculptors.
NeueHouse even offers members in-studio concerts and lecture series from leading artists and thinkers (Dan Colen, Walton Ford, Dodie Kazanjian and Olof Dreijer of music group The Knife.
Outside of their own space, NeueHouse has collaborated with the Madison Square Park Conservancy on their most recent Mad. Sq. Reads program, as well as programming with MoMA, rap group the Wu-Tang Clan and more.
