The New York City architecture, design, and planning firm of Montroy DeMarco Architecture (MDA) and Turin, Italy-based Isidoro Mastronardi of Studio aCd Architetti have completed the expansion of the U.S. headquarters office and showroom of the leading global coffee supplier and equipment manufacturer Lavazza, also based in Turin.
Located at 120 Wall Street in Lower Manhattan’s popular Wall Street Financial District, the newly added 6,500 s/f coffee equipment showroom and administrative office section occupies the entire 32nd floor of the building owned by Silverstein Properties. MDA also designed Lavazza’s original showroom and U.S. headquarters office, located on the 27th floor in the same building. Following the expansion, Lavazza now occupies 18,200 s/f within the East River waterfront office tower. MDA collaborated with the Italian design team on the project.
The showroom features a white polyurethane-finish display table for countertop coffee-making equipment and promotional items; hardwood floor in natural color; a narrow, white high counter table with bar stools in white and clear plastic; Lavazza-branded wall art depicting coffee plants and processing; and expansive windows. The custom display table includes coffee pod pockets that spell out a portion of the Lavazza name, and table legs of different materials and colors.
The conference room features a movable white table; white plastic chairs; red leather armchairs with swinging side tables for coffee tasting; built-in display shelves to showcase coffee-related products; white storage cabinetry; and a large three-dimensional wooden cut-out Lavazza logo wall relief.
