Healthfirst - 100 Church Street New York, NY
Healthfirst is a non-profit managed care organization that serves low income families in New York. Healthfirst’s new headquarters occupies 172,000 square feet over four floors, joined by a dramatic interior glass staircase. The space is designed with an open floor plan featuring low partition heights to let in the natural sunlight and foster employee collaboration.
The color and material palette projects a fresh, dynamic and energetic workplace that supports the client’s goals of transparency, natural lighting, and collaboration. The environmentally friendly finishes were chosen to be low maintenance while providing a striking aesthetic. An environmental graphics program inclusive of way finding elements, branding walls and graphic murals serves the functional purpose of intuitive way finding across the vast office floors and offers employees and visitors an uplifting experience.
The new offices earned a gold rating.
“The transition to our new corporate headquarters marks a milestone for Healthfirst as we begin a new era in this modernized space after a three-year long search,” said Pat Wang, Healthfirst President and CEO. “We look forward to continuing our presence in the heart of the business district of Lower Manhattan with new offices conducive to staff growth and future expansion.”
