Smile Train

New headquarters for Smile Train, the world’s leading cleft charity, that empowers local medical professionals to provide cleft treatment in their own communities. We worked closely with staff to reinvent their workplace in Midtown Manhattan, creating an open, collaborative environment with a wide range of meeting and lounge areas. Organic workstations (with standing desks for everyone) encourage connections between departments and integrated technologies throughout facilitate coordination and mobility for all. The material and fixture palette is warm and focused, reinforcing Smile Train’s identity and sustainable ethos, using details in key areas to create zones for individual work and larger meetings and events, all bridged by a vibrant communal lounge.
