This leading law firm sought new office space that would speak to their reputation and stature in the business community. They specifically wanted a radical departure from their former, traditional office aesthetic. The leasing opportunity on the top six floors of a downtown high-rise demanded a fast-track design and construction schedule of just ten months.
Designers captured the top floor as the conference center – a space that features a glass barrel vault with views of the city and the river. A central circulation spine links conference rooms, reception, and corporate gathering spaces. A custom stair connects executive offices on the 24th floor directly to the conference center, above. Each of the office floors includes a “living room” and beverage gallery at the elevator hub. The unique colors and furniture of the living rooms define each of the practice floors.
To meet the ten-month design and construction schedule, designers employed a combination of partitions and custom-designed features. A movable partition system, fitted with textured glass, defines conference rooms and offices throughout.
