Corgan was approached by Forest Laboratories; a New York based pharmaceutical company, to bring their company to a new level, through the design of their corporate headquarters. The project, consisting of 150,000 square feet of new offices, located on five floors of a Class-A building in midtown Manhattan, presented the opportunity for Forest Laboratories to revisit and restructure their corporate and workplace standards. Corgan held focus group meetings to define the client's culture, values and objectives. A robust program was developed to understand the total space demand, departmental adjacencies, stacking plans and growth expectations over the life of the fifteen year lease. The design was driven by the planning concept of creating nodes of activities or ‘nuclei’ to facilitate communication and encourage interaction between departments.

Technology, market disruptions, and social change are constantly rewriting the rules of the workplace. As businesses sprint into uncharted territories, we evolve and anticipate how these changes will impact the workplace.
At Corgan, we know agility is vital to problem solving. We listen deeply to our clients, conduct research, and evaluate all that's going on in the world. We build proactive teams — the right designers, the right researchers, the right experts in trends and strategy — deftly collaborating to create beautiful, relevant, and surprising solutions. One size does not fit all — our teams are nimble and customized for each project; the right expertise is brought in when needed, and off the team (and the invoice) when they’re not.
We solve complex problems with empathy, evidence, and inspiration. We are always, always dedicated to making sure our clients are ahead of the curve.

Furniture strategy is a plan of action designed to maximize the potential of your business with the physical tool that your team members interact with most: furniture. We guide our clients and work with each vendor to determine their best solution – rather than developing the solution first and asking each vendor to replicate it.
