Entry Description

Transparency, transformation and a strong sense of presence are the underlying concepts of Rockwell Group’s design for WME|IMG’s New York City office. Located on the 18th floor of 11 Madison Avenue, a landmark concrete and stone tower, WME|IMG has sweeping views of Madison Square Park. In a nod to the tower’s elegant concrete base and the agency’s long history, Rockwell Group’s material palette highlights the beauty, modernity and strength of concrete. A concrete feature wall divides the reception area from a stage area. A delicate glass and rose gold-finished copper reception desk in front of the feature wall emphasizes the contrast between raw and refined materials. The custom desk also serves as a display case for objects and artifacts.
