Design Statement:
The client relocated from 3,000 SF to 7,000 SF as part of an organizational growth plan. To support interim phases of this growth plan, we created connected but separate space connected by a barn door. This incubator space can be blocked off for true sub-tenant use, and opened later as needed for future sister organizations. One of the reasons the client loved this particular suite is that it has magnificent views of the park. To maximize this feature we designed the entry so the architecture directed guests' views to the exterior, and in most offices employees can see the park from their desks. The client is devoted to engaging young people in community activities, and therefore wanted to create a work environment that attracts and retains young employees while still supporting senior management. As a result the space includes meeting environments ranging from formal conference rooms with full VTC and smart-board capabilities to collaboration rooms with lounge furniture, banquette seating, VTC, and full wall whiteboards. To provide for large entertainment space the conference rooms can be opened to make one large conference room, which in turn can be opened to the lounge along with the collaboration room. One of the challenges was the 9'-10" slab-to-slab height. To maximize the ceiling height and drama of the lounge area we redirected all HVAC and sprinkler lines around the 675 SF area so we were able to attach drywall to hat channels on the slab resulting in a 9'-8" ceiling height.
