MEET at Chrystie
MEET at Chrystie is the new flagship location for MEET, The Meeting Solutions Company. The entry to the 2nd floor loft is illuminated in neon, highlighting the progression into the main space. This venue is intended to inspire re-imagining businesses, create new products or campaigns, and align strategic thinking. Two meeting spaces comfortably fit up to 40 guests on couches and assorted soft seating. Utilizing two larger infrastructures of walls that set the larger Meeting spaces up, then uses the logic of the Salon. The Alcove, a recess, is used as a way to create secondary small meeting booths, and spaces for programmatic elements like a wine and beer tap, library shelving, art exhibition and so on. The architecture of the Alcove attempts to recreate the Salon wall experience of multiple scales of framed paintings, and by spatializing them create smaller environments for inhabitation. The three alcove types consist of: -The Threshold, which is a thru condition whose walls and ceiling are wrapped in a wallpaper or texture and create an environment where casual conversations can be held. -The Booth, a habitable pocket condition where breakouts, small meetings or any intimate conversation or alone-time can be held. -The Frame, a depression or protrusion from the wall that houses a small program such as taps, shelving, exhibition etc.
