The ultimate office amenity in 2021? Fresh air

...the flat curtain of the facade begins to move. In tall folds like the side of an accordion, the exteriors of the buildings gradually crack open, revealing that their walls are actually massive glass windows. Pulling air in and regulating the building’s temperature, these automated vents rebel against the model of the air-conditioned box.

Quezada Architecture and Florencia Pita & Co Design UGG's New NYC Flagship

Cecilia Quezada

“The flagship is driven by the concept of ‘lifestyle’, which is not only about the products or merchandise, but rather about an ideal of a more free and open space for an open society. The space is fluid, there are no designated men’s or women's areas, they can all be either/or, and the layout can be constantly changed and re-adapted. The custom-made freestanding fixtures, which allow for a more intimate shopping experience, are designed to be movable and flexible, and embrace multiple ‘lifestyles’ and narratives,” says Florencia Pita, principal of Florencia Pita & Co.
