  • TPG Architecture has designed a new office space in New York City for global advertising and communications firm Havas.

    International advertising and communications firm Havas worked with TPG Architecture for more than two years to identify an appropriate space in Manhattan into which the industry leader could move its creative and media staff.  The client ultimately selected seven floors at 200 Hudson Street. The new office brings together over 1,100 staff from Havas Worldwide and agency groups Havas (formerly Euro RSCG), Havas Media (formerly MPG), Tonic, Adrenaline and Socialistic that had been in disparate locations throughout New York City.

    TPG’s design embraces the industrial origins of the architecture by exposing the bones of the building, while also honoring the client’s New York roots. Although Havas is a French corporation, the agency was established in New York City and TPG took design inspiration from the City’s energy and wealth of dynamic contrasts. Havas has adopted 100% open plan with bench-style desks topped by indirect lighting.

    TPG’s design seamlessly integrates Havas’ branding, needs and wish-list with a progressive workplace that reflects the firm’s forward-thinking philosophy. In addition to office areas and meeting rooms, the new space features an in-house, world-class production facility; an innovation laboratory; screening room and café.
