Audiobook Podcast Client

This tech client and HLW’s collaboration yields an office that merges intelligent technology, sustainability, and community engagement.

Modern, open-plan office space with a biophilic design element, featuring a living green wall in a circular pattern on a wooden backdrop. Steel railings foreground the view leading to a cozy seating area with a person working on a laptop, blending productivity and nature.

In 2019, our client relocated its headquarters to a new 71,352-square-foot space at One Washington in Newark, NJ. Collaborating with HLW, the audiobook company created a workplace that prioritizes the well-being of its employees and integrates into the local community. The design process, carried out during the height of the COVID-19 pandemic, focused on creating a variety of space types that foster unique interactions and flexible use throughout the day. Its sustainability is also topknotch: the project achieved LEED v4 ID+C Gold, WELL Health-Safety, and Fitwel 2 Stars certifications. Enhancing its connection to the local culture, the office includes murals and artwork from Newark artists, reinforcing the client’s commitment to community engagement and environmental responsibility.

75% of office furniture and 40% of ancillary furnishings repurposed from previous office.

Superior indoor air quality, energy efficiency, and water conservation.

Local artists’ murals and artwork strengthen the office’s connection to the community.
