SoundCloud’s New York City Offices

  • Industry Technology,
  • Blitz Architecture + Interiors has recently completed a new office design in New York City for social sound company SoundCloud.

    With a HQ in Berlin and offices all around the globe, SoundCloud can now add New York to its roster of office locations. The decision was a natural one: SoundCloud is the world’s leading social sound platform, and having an office in NYC’s buzzing Silicon Alley offers the company a foothold in the both the thriving tech and media scenes in New York. For the new location, Blitz assisted with the interior design and layout of the office to create a space where moguls, marketers, and engineers could all feel at home.

    In reference to the company’s position as a platform for artists to be heard, Blitz sourced acoustic foam from a studio supplier as a nod to the aesthetic of a recording studio. A custom soundwave graphic was applied to conference rooms, emphasizing SoundCloud’s role in the digital revolution of the music industry. While SoundCloud is an international company, it was also important for the office design to feel of its place. Brick walls were exposed to reveal the building’s old-school New York charm, which is complimented by speakeasy-style furniture.
