Net-A-Porter, DC2, New Jersey, USA
In 2012, NAP's global expansion also saw the requirement for an expansive, new Distribution Centre in the USA. From initially assisting with the search for and feasibility of appropriate buildings and with finding and assembling the new project team (local PM, GC, MEP and AOR), Studiofibre set about the design and realisation of this impressive 80,000 sq ft workplace.
Working within another completely different context, the offices are spread over 2 sprawling floor-plates with relatively low ceiling height and limited natural light, to remedy which, Studiofibre successfully remodelled the interior architecture. With continued contract furniture procurement and the manufacture of all bespoke furniture in the UK, Studiofibre once again maintained the now established design language of the world of NAP and this particular environment includes 6,750 sq ft of café/restaurant, a double height reception area, a feature theatre stairs replicating the central communal space at NAP Westfield and 12,500 sq ft of photography/video studios.
