In 2015, global ad agency R/GA asked over 1,000 of its New York employees what they most desired in their new office space. One of the top requests was more access to natural light. This posed a challenge: in a 200,000 square foot space, the majority of employees would sit away from windows. R/GA chose Ketra to meet that challenge. Our Natural Light is implemented throughout the office, giving employees access to the natural cues so important for energy, productivity, and healthy sleep at night.
Suzan Tillotson, the lighting designer for the space, has won the most prestigious award in lighting, LDA’s 2017 Lighting Designer of the Year. R/GA was also the winner of LDA’s 2017 Workplace of the Year, led by Tillotson Design Associates and Foster & Partners Architects.
