Hell's Kitchen, June 2007
We’re ensconced in our new office and I’m happy to report that the glass palace is pretty amazing! The light in the office is pleasant and the views are spectacular.
The space is much better than we feared it would be, too - our desks are big enough to accommodate our stuff and not make us feel cramped.
Some of the building’s “smart” features are a little bizarre. The lights sense when they need to come on, and the sunshades move up and down automatically depending on the light’s intensity and direction outside. Consequently, they seem to be moving around a lot, as the sun disappears behind clouds and moves across the sky.
In a way maybe that's good, though, because they remind us to notice the changing light. We're so much more connected to the external world in this building than we were in the prior one.
I’m so happy to be in a new, modern space!
