TYLin provided structural engineering services for this luxury fitness brand's new corporate headquarters at 35 Hudson Yards.

Feature stairs create sight lines across the project’s four contiguous levels, which contain a mix of traditional workspaces alongside more informal gathering areas. The project area totals 117,000 square feet.

New framing connects directly to existing columns to support the top of a feature stair between the 12th and 13th floors. TYLin avoided overloading the existing slab by adding new steel at the top. Another key design element is the feature stair with sunken seating between the 11th and 12th floors, where the firm carefully coordinated the slopes of the stair and bleachers to accommodate varying widths and elevations.

Additional scope of work included structural reinforcements for an operable partition and structural sizing for the backup structure of features such as platform seating areas and a kinetic art installation. During construction, the firm worked closely with contractors to identify optimal connection strategies. On the eighth and ninth floors, the firm also designed a new stair and support for a new railing as part of a fit out for an Equinox-affiliated co-working company.
