A wood-framed entry portal creates an immediate sense of arrival contrasted with figured stone finishes, walnut flooring, and sleek etched glass and bronze detailing for a warm and sophisticated environment. An adjacent hospitality bar and meeting lounge, connected to one of two board rooms, offers a convenient and casual space for collaboration. An extensive art collection–hand-selected by its art-loving CEO and thoughtfully highlighted by the design team–adds an eclectic and personal touch.
Programming maximizes the number of private offices to address the needs of C-suite executives responsible for national acquisitions and management. Floor-to-ceiling windows provide ample sunlight to perimeter offices while interior offices required more creative solutions, including the introduction of wall grazers and glass walls in the double-loaded corridors. Corridor finishes extend into office spaces to create an open, airy effect.
The COVID-19 pandemic required the entire project to be designed and constructed, virtually. Designers encountered multiple supply chain issues, collaborating quickly with the general contractor to reselect and resource readily available products multiple times while maintaining budgetary restraints and the integrity of the original design.
