History

The Yard is a collective of beautifully designed office spaces created to support the development of innovative people, ideas, and businesses.

Modern professionals make The Yard their space to work because we put the spotlight on your business. The Yard isn’t just an office; it’s a productive environment to grow your team, meet clients, and focus on business.

Through years of design research and member input, we’ve identified the ideal balance of office layout, privacy, technology, and common spaces that work best for the widest variety of business needs. Our members can depend on consistently contemporary, efficient, and versatile space to work at every location.

Additionally, The Yard hosts events for our community with local and national partners, including exclusive happy hours, art exhibition receptions, interactive workshops, conferences, and more. 

Inspiration

We know that both beauty and function are central elements to the ideal space. We design each space to foster the ability to work peacefully amidst the hustle of the city, and also to encourage connection and collaboration with others in the space.

Our renovations reveal and accentuate the unique character of each building: its history, structure, and neighborhood. With each new location, we ask: How can this space be inspired, and inspiring? It’s our way of connecting to the city; our stand against generic buildings and interiors. Our goal is to customize each location to highlight the soul of the building, and neighborhood it calls home.

Origins

Born in New York City, The Yard launched in Williamsburg, Brooklyn in 2011. Founders and native New Yorkers Morris Levy and Richard Beyda were fascinated by the city’s changing landscape and the potential for space itself to shape the way we work and create.

They assembled a team with deep backgrounds in design, creativity, and entrepreneurship, including award-winning architect David Bers, known for creating cutting-edge interiors for New York’s most prominent artists and designers.

Joining The Yard as original members were companies including Uber, Wanderfly, and the writing team behind Academy Award-winning film Birdman. Since then, our community has grown to over 600 companies and thousands of members across New York City.

Future

The Yard is now expanding beyond New York to cities including Philadelphia, Boston, Washington DC, Miami, Los Angeles, and San Francisco.

Today, businesses and independent professionals have many options for office space. Only The Yard delivers an experience focused on your business and professional growth, where function, design, and support exist in harmony.
