New Squarespace HQ

I am a big fan of the company Squarespace. They have a great and beautiful product. I use them for globizen.com.

Recently they moved into a new office in Lower Manhattan (98,000 sf), which was a consolidation of 4 distributed offices. The interiors were designed by New York-based A+I.

Not surprisingly, it’s a beautiful space:

But two other things stood out for me. 

One: The amount of informal working/meeting spaces. I really had to look for the conventional office seating.

Two: The ground floor presence and the lobby which doubles as a possible event space.

For consumer-facing companies, I am really attracted to having a street presence and having spaces that can be programmed. It’s a way to engage and plug in to what’s happening beyond the office. Here’s a related example.

I’m not sure if their narrative is the same as mine, but regardless: cool space.
