Founded in 1989, Horizon Media is the largest independent media services company in the U.S. It is quick growing and needed a new space to accommodate its New York City staff who were scattered within 10 blocks in three buildings and on nine floors.
Their new refuge was designed by New York's a+i Architecture, who created a mix of industrial-scale open space - 115,000 square feet in total on three floors - and warm, inviting working environments.
Horizon's new offices occupy the 14th, 15th and 16th floors at the 1 Hudson Square on 75 Varick Street between Grand and Canal Streets.
The building was originally a printing factory with an impressive concrete structure, 360-degree views and high ceilings. With such good foundations to work with, a+i amplified the grandeur by cutting a wide staircase through all three floors.
The color palette of Horizon's new space is neutral with accessories, furnishings, and millwork providing bursts of color.
