NEW YORK–(BUSINESS WIRE)–M Moser, an international architecture and design firm, was retained by global client Blackstone to develop a new workplace for Blackstone’s Innovations and Infrastructure (Bxii) team in New York City. Located adjacent to Blackstone’s Midtown Manhattan headquarters, the Bxii environment will support the team’s innovative work, as well as their creative culture and aesthetic. The Bxii team works in a very fluid and flexible manner, and tapped M Moser to help them achieve space typologies that support this approach. M Moser worked in collaboration with team leaders to develop a distinct and authentic space that speaks specifically to Bxii’s culture and goals.
Bill Murphy, Senior Managing Director and Chief Technology Officer, said that his vision for the Bxii team was to reposition the way this team had been operating from a traditional “waterfall” method to an agile workforce, while eliminating inefficient, siloed environments. In order to provide the right tools for this change, a huge shift was required to break away from the company’s legacy space and inhabit a space that spoke to Bxii culture and tech-like ideation work style. M Moser translated this vision into a dynamic, flexible and agile financial technology environment that fosters a culture of collaboration and provocative thinking.
Bxii desired a space that felt bold and raw, but authentic – a custom workshop created just for them. As a group of financial technology developers, the Bxii team needs the flexibility and dynamism that incubators or start-ups companies require. M Moser supported these strategic goals by incorporating a mix of multifunctional and transparent spaces that can adapt to many different scenarios.
Blackstone Innovations and Infrastructure celebrated the opening of their new home at 601 Lexington Avenue, Manhattan in April 2017.
