“We wanted The Malin to be a beautiful and functional space that is the perfect place to work. During the pandemic, I envisioned what it would take to inspire people to want to return to their workplace, and I knew it should be in an exciting neighborhood, with various areas that promoted different ways of working, with a comfortable and inviting, yet elevated design. From there the Evil One was born, ”says McGuigan.

“It had to be inspiring and functional, where someone can accomplish a quick task or a long-term project with equal ease,” adds Robinson. “We’re also right in the cultural heart of downtown New York City, where members can then tour galleries, restaurants and shops and get the most of the city.”
