Tour LinkedIn’s New York Office in the Empire State Building

More...

IA DESIGNS A WORKPLACE WITH MEANDERING PATHWAYS AND A VARIETY OF MEETING AREAS TO ENCOURAGE AND SUPPORT RELATIONSHIP BUILDING FOR LINKEDIN EMPLOYEES.

LinkedIn, the preeminent social networking site for professionals, recently moved into the 28th floor of New York’s landmark Empire State Building. The new space caps off LinkedIn’s real estate stack of half a dozen floors that engineers, designers, and a robust sales team call home.


PROJECT HIGHLIGHTS

  • The elevator lobby is bathed in blue light to signify arrival at LinkedIn’s “club level,” and—unlike signage—can be seen from any entry point.
  • A ribbon of LinkedIn-blue millwork connects all amenity zones across the southern portion of the floor plate.
  • Informal lounge spaces adjacent to amenity zones encourage collaboration.
  • Customizable environmental graphics, including a chalkboard wall and marquis-tile board, promote staff engagement.

  • A speakeasy concealed behind 133 rotary phones reinforces LinkedIn’s commitment to connections through technology with a vintage twist.
  • A lounge doubles as a gallery for photos of everyday architectural geometries throughout New York City that spells out LinkedIn NY.

  • A meandering path guides ramblers around the floor plate and through workstations.
  • Conference rooms are named after lesser-known, tertiary New York streets to spark conversation among employees.

  • A custom light box in the conference center reinforces a sense of place for visitors.
  • Views north to the Chrysler building and south to the Flatiron Building, OneWorld Trade Center Tower, and the Statue of Liberty remain unobstructed.
