Wink, the New York City-based home tech company whose products create an easy-to-use hub for other smart home devices, has moved on from its humble (now demolished) garage-space beginnings to a decidedly snazzier garage, this time in the historic (and cavernous) Terminal Warehouse building near Hudson Yards.
When the company started out in 2014 in a space behind a gas station in SoHo, there was only one bathroom for 40 people, a mouse problem, and less than optimal heating during the winter. After jumping around to a couple more spots, Wink has finally settled into more spacious, industrial-meets-loft accommodations—ones that measure over 14,000 square feet.
The reclaimed-wood and glass-filled digs designed by Lee Chan provide the connected-home purveyor ample space for testing the myriad devices that work with Wink in a dedicated QA (quality assurance) lab, a mock home set up for showcasing how it all comes together, and all the desks that its operations, engineering, design, and business teams could ever need. Take a look below.
