The design goal was achieved by holding back all the partitions from the perimeter. Ceiling heights vary based upon function. The ceiling progressively gets higher toward the perimeter reaching a height of twelve feet. The elevator lobby features wood paneling in walnut which is subdivided by back-lit sections of onyx. The flooring is walnut plank with a custom Tibetan rug featuring stripes of varying color and width. The walnut floor continues into the Reception Area and is highlighted by a Tibetan rug in a geometric motif. The offices and open areas are illuminated with ambient lighting. Suites are created within the open area by use of custom over-scaled pendants. Office partitions are full height butted glass reinforcing the firm’s philosophy of being open and working as a team. Additionally, a light shelf and the walnut plank flooring run the entire length of the glass partition.
