For this large and well known hip hop recording company, refinement comes in sleep forms, suggestions for feng shui and energy flow, and an untraditional office design complete with weightlifting space, an aerobics room, a dance studio an isolation chamber for quiet reflection. Balance was a major theme in Turett’s design these corporate offices have to communicate the success of the label while not buying into the cultural symbolism of mainstream American business.

When this was published in Interior Design Magazine, the writer called Tommy Boy an exercise in “more upscale street sensibility.” The real success of the design was to be found in the pleasure it brought to those who used the space, from senior management to reception.
