- Why this project is notable: The 15,000-square-foot workplace has instantly transformed the corporate atmosphere through both stylistic and functional changes. The goal of the project was to “create a setting that would encourage collaboration and communication, eliminating the silo-type environments seen in real estate offices and creating a sense of home,” said CetraRuddy Co-founder Nancy Ruddy. Corcoran executives say the result has been transformative, with more conversation, greater collaboration and a growing sense of community. The design also incorporates downtown SoHo flair with wide-board wood floors, handcrafted details and floor-to-ceiling sliding glass panels for a loft-like feel.
