York Capital Management, a fast-growing hedge fund, relocated its offices to the General Motors Building. The program for this 100-person, investment firm includes an open reception area, which joins guest offices and a suite of conference rooms with the marketing department. At its center is an open trading floor, with workstations configured for collaboration, surrounded by private offices. To support the firm's life, there are three pantries, a gymnasium with locker rooms, and a massage room.
The understated, yet highly refined interior, serves as the backdrop for York's museum-quality collection of photographs of New York City. Contrasting white Italian marble, and dark American walnut surround the firm's collection of Classic Modern furniture. The perimeter private offices are glazed floor to ceiling, so that everyone at York shares the magnificent views of Central Park.
