Google Showroom at 9th Avenue


Manhattan, NY


Reddymade Architecture and Design


5,000 Square Feet


Stratford Engineering was involved in the design process for the first 5,000 square foot, Google retail store in Chelsea, Manhattan, New York. The unique storefront structure has a modern exterior, with large glass panels, and looking towards Chelsea Market.

Stratford worked closely with Reddymade to reinforce the existing structure by installing a brand new full ground floor slab and to support the various pieces of art and sculptures around the space. Stratford also design the support systems for the following:

  • Provided a support system for the Imagination Space, including a steel support system for the ceiling above and ground floor below.
  • Designed the supports for the various interactive monitors in the open space, including the Event Space screens.
  • Installed tension cables from the floor above to support the large wireframe sculpture.
  • Mounted steel beams and welded steel plates to the existing framing to support the new discovery boxes at the front of the store.
