EisnerAmper, New York City Headquarters

FCA (Francis Cauffman Architects) as Architects

Spurred by rapid growth, national business, and accounting consultancy EisnerAmper, tapped long-time collaborator FCA (Francis Cauffman Architects) to develop their new headquarters, which spans five floors at 733 Third Avenue in New York City, along with Project Managers VVA and JTMagen, one of the leading interior fit out contractors in NYC. Having completed EisnerAmper’s Philadelphia office as well as their San Francisco location—a project that shifted the company’s approach to office design toward a highly flexible workplace—FCA sought to create a New York HQ that pushed the boundaries of workplace design even further. Spread across 125,000 square feet, the collaborative and agile design scheme aligns with EisnerAmper’s vision for expansion while also adhering to emerging workplace trends. 


Upon approaching the building, employees, visitors, and clients are greeted with large EisnerAmper marquee signage on the exterior, firmly establishing the company’s street-level Welcome Center. The FCA team ensured a seamless entry sequence into the space by creating a welcoming ground-level concierge, a hospitality-inspired guest lounge with restrooms, a pantry, and a variety of enclosed huddle rooms for small meetings or clients who wish to utilize the space. Elevators shuttle guests and employees to the seventh floor, where doors open to a lobby with EisnerAmper’s digital brand messaging and environmental graphics (developed by FCA, in tandem with graphic branding firms AirSpace and EXP). The seventh floor sets the groundwork for the vertical community and easy communication. Passing through the lobby to The Pulse, the main amenity zone. The space opens into a three-story atrium that houses the central staircase and functions as a large central hub that encourages employee social and professional connectivity within The Pulse and vertically throughout the facility. The Pulse also features a healthy grab+go food and beverage station, an IT genius bar, a game space, a variety of lounge and touch-down options, as well access to the large landscaped and furnished outdoor terrace. 


Focusing on employees’ health and wellness, the design team carefully curated a selection of biophilic elements. They used a robust live plant program, as well as organic and natural textures, patterns, and finishes to bring a sense of holistic nature into the dense midtown Manhattan headquarters. Further supporting the wellbeing and comfort of EisnerAmper’s employees, FCA created more intimate workstation neighborhoods that can be reserved each day through the company’s smartphone app, and ensured that the layout of each floor provided everyone with access to natural daylight throughout the space. The outdoor terrace on the seventh floor allows employees to step outside for a break or work beyond the interior’s confines. In addition to the sizable seventh-floor community hub, each level features its own curated touch-down space and community center. These areas offer healthy food options daily, encouraging staff to venture to different floors to socialize and take advantage of a variety of amenities.


Moving to a new location provided EisnerAmper with the opportunity to push the envelope in design and create a unique and efficient space to enhance the overall user and client experience. The resulting headquarters is a creative and comfortable workplace equipped to help EisnerAmper continue paving its path as a leader within its industry.
