Transition a single-tenant building into a multi-tenant. Bring the lobby to a place where it attracts tenants.


The existing, full-building tenant over-branded and overdid their lobby experience. How do we attract new tenants while reimagining the building?


A monumental light sculpture was employed to maximize the overall volume of the space and engage visitors. Coffered ceilings were removed and replaced by a simple light cove, highlighting the large-scale decorative light sculpture. An all-glass vestibule allows for maximum light and views while bringing the building up to current energy code standards. Floor-to-ceiling large format stone panels combined with warm planked wood wall cladding add a simple elegance while further accentuating the verticality of the space. The warm palette and varied materials serve to elevate the overall design and modernize the building.
