If you thought the latest pair of Jordans was cool, just wait til you check out Nike’s new NYC headquarters. On 6th Avenue in the heart of Midtown, you’ll find the new 6-story office space that’s almost a perfect mix of Sterling Cooper Draper Price and every cool Silicon Valley office you’ve ever dreamed of working in. The open floor plan has plenty of exposed wood and recycled materials, a variety of unconventional workspaces, a VW bus and plenty of other “conference rooms” that would make meetings significantly less painful. Nike also tapped the firm Miniwiz—who they’ve worked with on previous projects like Area 13 and NikeLab—to create custom tiles throughout the headquarters with a focus on recycled materials. Nike’s commitment to sustainability and community doesn’t stop there either. The rooftop terrace includes a huge Nike swoosh made of plants that’s visible from the sky. Oh yeah, and they also have a 4,000-square-foot indoor basketball court with enough room for 400 spectators that they’ll be using for special events with community partners, local leagues and high school teams.
