The firm — which has its headquarters in London and has outposts in Scotland, Australia, Thailand, Singapore, San Francisco and New Haven, Conn. — currently has a 5,000-square-foot New York City office at 45 East 20th Street. It plans to move to 104 West 29th Street in mid-December.

“Atelier is highly sought out for its high-end, sustainable, environmentally-friendly building, lighting and engineering designs,” Norman Bobrow & Company’s Michael Nazarian said in a statement. “They needed more space to grow their own business and bring on new staff.”

Nazarian represented Atelier Ten along with colleague Matt Kashani. The landlord, Samco Properties, handled it in-house via Joshua Smith. Smith did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

Other tenants in the 120,000-square-foot 104 West 29th Street include video production facility The Molecule, marketing agency B Squared and rug retailer Galerie Shabab.
