Design Republic has made it to finalist for the NYCxDesign awards again this year for another of our amazing lobby projects!

The recently completed work at 450 Seventh Ave for The Kaufman Organization plays upon the concept of abstract layering and playfulness of fabric when seen through the lens of a designer. The lobby wows visitors with a custom layered screen feature wall and sculptural interlocking light fixture. Truly a great project to be nominated!

Design Republic has just wrapped up another successful year with the ACE Program mentoring Bronx International High School team 14! The ACE program is to give high school students a taste of what a career in design and construction is like and for the past 4 years, DR has participated alongside Shawmut in shaping what these students think architects and designers do.

It was a truly rewarding experience to see how hard these students worked and grew over the course of a few months. We can't wait for next year!

“I would absolutely work with Design Republic again. I think if I was to do another space like this, in my mind Design Republic would be the benchmark against which I assessed any other architect”.

Take-Two Interactive Software’s Mid-town office has been named winner of the Avenue of the Americas Association’s 2018 Technology Innovation Award during their 92nd Anniversary Gala!

When Take-Two Interactive Software commissioned Design Republic to create their new Headquarters, we were positive the opportunity was to envision and design an iconic work space for its 300 employees. We are excited our Client has been recognized for their Iconic video gaming brand and the courage to embrace a leading edge workspace for its employees. Along with a street level entrance, employees and investors are welcomed by an elegant and bold lobby entrance with 3 towering double height AV-tryptic screens that project their logo or the latest in video games. The lobby also converts into a multipurpose event space that enhances the user experience.
