As the offices for both Leader Design Studio and SAWA Design Studio, this project became an opportunity to showcase the design elements for which the firms have become known.
The +/- 2,000 sf shell was divided into work areas, a conference room, break room, restroom and two private offices. Over the offices a storage loft was added taking advantage of the spaces high ceilings.
The existing concrete slab was ground and polished providing a cost effective yet durable floor surface. Above, wood slates define the entry area & greeting visitors at a human scale, while high clerestory windows provide the entire space with natural daylight.
Modern frame-less glass defines the conference room, while the remaining space was left open for modular workstations. An additional high window in the conference room captures daylight from above the back of house area, while keeping it out of view.
