The office has a strong connection to the community. The space and activity contained within is visible from the courtyard and from the street. An oversized rotating media wall is central to the open floor plan of the ground floor and can be configured in any number of ways to offer multiple configurations for display and meeting opportunities. A series of “living room” spaces can be utilized or the space can be opened up to accommodate larger events to include lectures, meetings, etc. for up to 200 people.
An architectural staircase is a bold design feature that unites the two levels of the office environment. The organic form of the sinuous stair of white is central to all activity. The stair is finished in a smooth steel troweled plaster and detailed with continuous accent lighting. A glass volume is central to the office and serves as the main conference area. Sheets of glass retract into the thickened walls that define the room. The space can be reconfigured as part of the greater whole. The office space is a classic, timeless architectural interior where attention to detail and a commitment to sustainability play a prominent role in the design of the 21st century office environment.
