Global HIV Vaccine Enterprise - NEW YORK, NY

The mission of the Global HIV Vaccine Enterprise, established by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, is 'to convene scientists, researchers, government, industry and advocates from around the world in order to accelerate the development of an effective HIV vaccine'.

The offices of the New York headquarters reflect this mission by fostering a sense of collaboration. Divisions between private offices and the central open office are kept transparent, and conference rooms and meeting spaces of various scales are distributed throughout to accommodate the needs of the staff and the frequent events they host. Window walls on three sides suffuse the space with light and provide multiple exposures to the New York skyline, inviting the city in while maintaining a sense of calm. Simple materials and clean lines create a feeling of openness, punctuated by fields of color and artwork collected from regions of the world affected by the virus.
