Trammo is an International Commodities Merchandising and Trading Company located at One Rockefeller, NYC.  With its proximity to transportation and proven functionality developed in test fits, the location was a perfect fit.  Their loft-like space is 19,000 SF. 

Trammo leadership liked the “tech loft” aesthetic, so the space features exposed ceilings and structural elements, glazed meeting rooms and offices, and plenty of shared “social” spaces for employees.  However, the new office also provides an excellent work environment through fixtures and materials with high noise mitigation properties, such as Pyrok StarSilent acoustical treatment over exposed concrete ceiling surfaces, soundproofed doors in glazed meeting rooms, and glazed partitions with a high STC rating.  Each private office has an Ecophon dropped acoustical cloud ceiling that fits two linear Finelite LED lights.  Meeting rooms feature Fantoni Topakustik ceilings that provide additional acoustical mitigation, while also hiding some of the infrastructure.  The lobby, featuring  textured walls, custom logo hardware, and several model ship cases, all combining the medium, identity and brand in which Trammo strives to convey. 

Overall, the design incorporates the dramatic views from Rockefeller Center.  “The public areas in particular feature the best views so that all employees can enjoy them, rather than relegating them to the executives’ private offices.  For example, the pantry windows looks directly at the skating rink and the site of the annual Christmas tree lighting at the heart of Rockefeller Center, offering one of the most desired views in Manhattan to all personnel.  Trammo wanted a more egalitarian space that focused on the comfort and well-being of employees.

 There is a cohesive design throughout the space that highlights the company’s business, energetic culture, and focus on shipping and raw materials trading.
