GKV Architects was commissioned as architect for the interior fit-out of 14 floors of 4 World Trade Center, encompassing 580,000 sf. The open workstation planning fosters greater communication between individuals, moving away from closed office models. A key feature of the design for this space in the new building is the color themes that correlate to each floor. There are 4 different colors that are assigned to each of the 14 floors, allowing for greater ease when navigating the expansive space.
Workstations, conference rooms and suites make up most of the floor plan. Teaming tables are also placed in the design to encourage collaboration. The interior fit-out at 4 World Trade Center also features training rooms, classrooms, pantries, an interconnecting staircase, copy rooms, filing rooms and storage rooms. Specialty rooms include a graphic print shop, libraries and a command center. The 35th floor also features a public assembly space that can accommodate up to 250 people.
The fit-out at 4 World Trade Center is targeting a minimum of a LEED Silver Certification.
