The Authors Guild is a not for profit organization that represents and advises American authors. Their new office space is located in a dense area of midtown Manhattan, with restricted views and limited light.

To take advantage of the available light, the open work stations and private offices where concentrated work is done are located adjacent to the windows. The top of the partitions are left open or glazed where privacy is required, to allow as much daylight as possible to penetrate into the interior of the space. 
Surrounded by these offices, the central area is devoted to the storage of data and work rooms which represent the two aspects of the Authors Guild, the maintenance of legal and contractual documents and the support of the work of the member authors.

The Authors Guild’s interest in reincorporating elements of their existing office allowed us to develop with them a palette of reused and sustainable materials.
