1WSQ

The Sapphire Club

Designed to feel like an exclusive members-only club, the amenity space at 1 Willoughby Square serves as a place for tenants to find refuge during their workday or enjoy a cocktail after a long day in the office. The amenity area occupies 5,400 SF on the 15th floor, inclusive of outdoor space, and features a myriad of destinations that can be used for anything from focused work to hosting events to closing deals.

Vocon drew inspiration from the sapphire brick on the exterior of 1WSQ to inform the interior color scheme. The custom sapphire-toned bar nicknamed “The Garden,” serves as a central anchor and makes a powerful statement. Custom blue banquettes draw the eye out toward the terrace and the stunning views of Brooklyn and Manhattan beyond. Neutral finishes balance these striking blue tones, punctuated by warm woods and metals, woven and tucked fabric walls, playful terrazzo, and soothing greenery for added visual interest. Materials such as marble and concrete paired with sleek powder coated black lighting and accents enhance the industrial aura of the space and reference the building’s architecture. Carefully-positioned ductwork and HVAC allows for open, clean ceiling slabs.
