Sprawling across top nine levels of a tower in Midtown’s Rockefeller Center in New York, the new White & Case Law Offices are a testament to quality and commitment. HOK and HYL Architecture left no detail overlooked crafting every inch of this 440,000 sqf contemporary office space. “It’s a feeling of being made, not manufactured,” HOK senior principal Tom Polucci says.
Adding character to each room Decoustics custom-engineered ceilings are seen throughout the hallways, offices, collaboration areas, fitness facilities and the cafeteria. Manufactured for a precise fit Decoustics’ custom stained Solo-M and Claro® acoustical products absorb noise and travelling sounds delivering utmost privacy where it matters most.
