Partners + Napier Office Relocation

823 PN Offices C 51312timwilkes optimized

A new space for Partners + Napier in Rochester, NY featuring a monumental connecting staircase between two floors of office space.

Partners + Napier, an award-winning marketing and advertising agency, partnered with Bergmann and The Pike Company for a highly accelerated design build interior fit-out during their 2018 office relocation.

The highly anticipated office relocation is a true expression of their brand and values; energized, gutsy, collaborative and comfortable. The highlight of the space is a 24-foot-wide monumental connecting staircase for gathering and collaborating and is equipped with two projection screens and a sound system that accommodates all 160+ employees during agency-wide meetings.

Derived for a largely experimental layout, the new Partners + Napier office is designed to draw the client through the open floor plan, experiencing how the staff created and concepts their work and ideas. Both clients and employees share the comforts of the space together with various lounge areas and a café bar area equipped with specialty coffees, as well as beer and wine on tap. The client area boasts a client lounge, signature client conference room, energetic brainstorm areas and a virtual reality lounge.

Bergmann was engaged for full pre-design, and construction administration services. Our designers began by conducting a series of programming interviews with nearly 10 unique employee groups and cataloged a variety of working styles and needs for the new space.
