Among Hachette’s greatest assets are its books, which figure prominently in the company’s new Boston and New York workplaces. Custom bookcase millwork is integrated into the architectural design, accented by the colorful spines of Hachette’s bestsellers. With double-height ceilings filled with natural light, the open-plan office emphasizes collaboration, comm- unication and visibility for staff, authors and visitors. Enclosed team and senior leadership rooms, branded libraries, “quiet car” work zones, and open whiteboard and media areas accommo- date a range of work modes. New branding features bold graphics and logos, book-cover artwork and clear wayfinding, creating an environment inspired by the publishing of unforgettable books.
