Casper Headquarters

Architecture Research Office as Architects

The new headquarters for Casper, the global sleep company, translates the brand's playful and dreamy aesthetic within an office building. Through an intelligent planning strategy and vibrant materiality, the design supports Casper’s mission to bring better sleep to all around the world.

Located on the 39th and 40th floors of Three World Trade Center, the office features large open work areas that are punctuated by varied collaborative spaces, ranging from conference rooms, to enclosed phone booths, to semi-enclosed work pods. Large common areas with the best views and ample daylight anchor each floor along the west side and are linked by a wood-paneled slatted stair.

Work “neighborhoods” along the perimeter of both floors organize groups by departmental relationships. The central core of the square floorplate provides orientation: murals on exposed concrete mark the east and west, while translucent meeting rooms line the north and south of the office. Larger conference rooms anchor the four corners and support spaces, including future nap pods and a mock store, are tucked within the core.

Acoustics were carefully calibrated to ensure the flexible collaborative workspace would be attractive, comfortable, and productive. Meeting spaces of all sizes range from large conference rooms to felt-wrapped “work pods.” Above large desking areas, custom curving baffles integrate lighting and enhance acoustics.

Details further expresses Casper’s whimsical identity in an intelligent design strategy. Curving portals through the building core define openings and a material palette of muted accent colors, soft curving surfaces, and warm wood cabinetry add warmth. The new headquarters evokes the sensation of working within a cloud.
