  • PSA Law Offices went through the challenging task of developing a new image for a brand/entity that has been active for almost 20 years, with a stable and recognized identity. The goal was to create a spatial identity exclusive to the law firm that would be modern yet timeless, elegant, and comfortable.

    Analyzing the characteristics of the brand and assessing how they could be translated into the architectural context of the space, the concept developed was to give primacy to elegance and comfort, a language that was modern but at the same time timeless.

    The materials that were used, such as wood, stone, glass, and fabric, were combined in a colour palette that sought the elegance of grey, the modernity of black, the timelessness of natural stone, and the comfort of wood.

    The internal layout was structured according to the preliminary program defined, with a clear distinction between the reception area and the professional service spaces.

    The reception area stands out with its volumetry, whose ceiling height gives it a nobility that characterizes and hierarchizes the communicating spaces. The offices and meeting rooms’ partitions allow visual amplitude without jeopardizing the necessary privacy. The proposed solution for rejuvenating the PSA brand image is structured around its unique characteristics, evident in the materiality and spatial design, providing clear user appropriation with well-defined moments and volumetric hierarchies. The result is a space that exudes a strong and distinct identity, offering an elegant and comfortable experience that is both contemporary and timeless.
