Text description provided by the architects. Purpose is a creative strategy consulting agency largely focused on organizing mass online movements. They took a floor in the mansard roof storage space of the old Arnold Constable Department Store (now defunct) on 5th avenue.
The space was particularly challenging because the windows started at 6’ above the floor. New platforms were added along the perimeter containing war rooms for the various organizations and movements purpose has launched.
The platforms and ramp connect at the open pantry with tiered levels for presentations and events. Custom desks are economically made from sheets of plywood, rubber and 4x4 posts.
