Bjarke Ingels’s architecture firm, BIG, has officially moved its offices from Manhattan to Brooklyn. The firm first made the announcement just a little over a year ago, but it wasn’t until last month that the move actually took place.
The over 250-person team will now work out of Two Trees Management’s Dumbo office building located at 45 Main Street. The firm offered a peek at its new space on Instagram yesterday with a large neon sign spelling out the firm’s name at the entrance.
Ingels also owns a home in Dumbo: a three-bedroom duplex that has four private terraces. At the time of the move’s announcement last March, Ingels said Dumbo reminded him of his native Copenhagen, and that he liked the neighborhood’s artistic spirit, and the fact that many of his clients lived in Brooklyn.
One of the high-profile projects his firm is currently working on in NYC is the High Line-adjacent condo building, which is currently rising along Eleventh Avenue, and offered up a new rendering earlier this month.
