    A few project notes:

    “The primary goals for their new space were to provide an employee-focused environment that allowed all desks access to natural light and views to the exterior while incorporating open collaboration spaces with the ability to still have heads-down work.

    It was important to their culture that we design a comfortable airy space that would act as a backdrop for their extensive art collection. The design solution introduced light finishes with accents of chocolate brown to bring warmth and an inviting feel to visitors as they entered the reception area. Built-in planters flank the waiting area to bring a sense of nature and home to our client’s grantees. All office fronts are full height glass to allow natural light to enter the offices and create a sense of openness to the employees.

    Open lounge seating areas along with several different sized conference rooms accommodate diverse meeting styles and encourage instant collaboration. The project success was based on the selection of textural materials to support the client artwork, various wood elements, and white focal points of the design.”
