J.T. Magen builds award-winning Manhattan headquarters for ad agency McCann

This global advertising company’s five-floor headquarters features creatively themed interiors to encourage innovation and teamwork.

Since McCann renovated 107,500 square feet on five floors in 2013, it has found that its new interiors serve it well. The agency noted that the design, which fosters collaboration, flexibility and spontaneity, improved its business record in 2014. It won a significant number of pitches to potential clients, including Microsoft, and earned over $150 million in revenue, a 15 percent increase over the prior year’s approximate $130 million.

We wanted to liberate the space by replacing the cubicle layout with an open environment encouraging a modern and collaborative way of working, as well as reveal the extraordinary views of Manhattan previously only enjoyed by a select few.

It’s more of a communication space than an office – people work in a face-to-face way.
