From Cellar to Skyline: The Story Behind Rémy Cointreau’s New York Office

Raise a glass for Rémy Cointreau. The French spirits group now has a brand new home in the heart of New York City, located at 3 Times Square. Designed by TPG Architecture, the new 30,000-square-foot workspace embodies the essence of the Rémy Cointreau brand. From wine cellar-inspired elevator lobby to the full bar serving the original frozen Margherita, TPG Architecture incorporates numerous references to the company’s rich history, seamlessly bridging the past and present in this new modern office.

“Our goal with this project was to blend all of Rémy Cointreau’s brands into one cohesive space,” explains Maggie Giaccone, NCIDQ and Senior Associate at TPG Architecture. “We took inspiration from their various cellar spaces, incorporating elements like Venetian plaster walls and arched/curved ceilings into the design. Our concept extends this inspiration to the NYC office itself, viewing it as its own cellar where the work produced here is as vital as the distilling process.”

A hallway with arched ceilings, stone floors, and doors labeled "B5" and "B4" on either side, leading to a glass door at the end with a red sofa visible through the glass.

Stepping into the elevator lobby, visitors will notice the Venetian plaster and curved ceiling details, alluding to the cellars that play such an important role in developing fine spirits. A full bar welcomes guests and employees after entering the office. Outfitted with a variety of seating options, from bar seating to plush red velvet banquettes, this multifunctional area fosters a casual atmosphere for large meetings, impromptu collaborations, and social events.
