Coworking pioneer The Wing sets the bar when it comes to offering female-first amenities in its spaces, from breastfeeding rooms to meeting spaces that honour literary greats. Naturally, its own Manhattan headquarters hones this even further – down to the brand’s signature pink hues and pastel shades.
The office is located in a former hospital in the East Village, constructed in 1854 for German immigrants and later expanded with a women-only wing.
There’s no shortage of historic elements still in place following the building’s adaptive reuse, including tiled floors and iron bannister rails, but the company’s design team have added brightly coloured pastel furniture, dusty pink walls and patterned wallpaper. Chairs have been designed specifically with a woman’s body in mind.
Some 150 employees now call the building’s four floors home, and they can take advantage of its open spaces, quiet nooks, and collection of conference rooms that reference well-known women.
