A unique challenge the design team faced was meeting security and regulatory requirements while providing a hospitality forward experience for visitors. Additionally, a compressed design timeline and integrating an existing stair into the new brand experience were also challenges of this project.
The solution was layering materials and amenities to create a hospitality experience. The layered approach creates a natural flow through the space that subtly offers distinct zones for each department without the creation of visual barriers or hierarchical structure. Additionally, strategic program arrangements were incorporated to use a layered approach to security along with a sequential approach to circulate throughout the office. Lastly, an integrated approach was used to brand experiences supported by architecture, interior design, and environmental graphics.
