FXCollaborative’s new building at 1 Willoughby Square in Brooklyn will soon be the new home of the firm. The mixed-use tower rises 34-stories tall and offers amazing views of Lower Manhattan. The building’s design prioritizes open workspaces and social interaction with a column-free, exposed structure. While each floor will feature floor to ceiling windows and a balcony, three “super-floors” will have extra high eighteen foot ceilings and terraces or loggias that look out onto Willoughby Park. The building’s aesthetic pays homage to the industrial past of Brooklyn by incorporating elements of the Brooklyn loft look with oversized windows and materials like glazed brick and exposed concrete. The navy-blue facade is even a nod to another nearby building designed by Ralph Walker.
