The firm designed the new workplace for the client in the 11 Stanwix building in downtown Pittsburgh. The challenge of this design was to connect the client with their sister company and adjacent tenant space, via sliding doors that open into each other. The client wanted to maintain their conservative work culture and their own identity while still working cohesively with their sister company’s more vibrant space.
The interior layout reflects the company’s development and growth; private offices around the perimeter, open office interior area and ample conference space throughout the office. The material palette is reflective of the client’s office culture with subtle pattern similarities to the adjacent space, allowing the client to maintain their own distinct workplace appearance. The carpet pattern is used to draw you into the spaces and emphasized it’s inviting view. It also serves as a bridge between the two tenant areas.
