SOM

Kirkland & Ellis LLP – New York Conference Center

With their long-standing relationship with Kirkland & Ellis, a premier international law firm, SOM was asked to create a flexible and highly functional conference center for the law firm's Manhattan office in the Citigroup Center (now referred to as 601 Lexington Avenue). The conference center was to occupy the tower's 50th floor, offering remarkable 360-degree views of the city.

SOM created a modern environment that relates to the firm's office floors but has its own distinct character. The program includes 12 conference rooms, a full-service pantry, an elegant reception area, and ample space for administrative functions. The reception area doubles as a business center for traveling professionals, with informal meeting areas and touchdown desks with integrated equipment. The conference center also contains an expansive multipurpose room that can be used for training sessions, partner lunches, and formal events. This versatile space can be divided by partitions or be joined with two corner conference rooms.
