Given the understanding that each of the client’s floors has a user group that works in diverse and creative ways, our team concluded each floor would need to have a design unique to the user group working on that floor, while keeping the same solid design backbone as the familiar visual on each floor. In general, there is a core company color palette that is used on each floor that helps to brand the space and cohere the multiple floors. Modernity mixed with warmth and texture is the ubiquitous thread in the big picture. For example, the client’s new space takes on a playful and modern nature with Shaw Contract’s The Park collection. The three shades of rich greys in this series allow subtle movement through the space while allowing the herringbone pattern to stand out as its own design detail. The tonal variations in the carpet planks are the foundation to the whimsical design of the client’s spaces which evolve through each floor we renovate. Without creating any design barriers, the field carpet and varying Shaw Contract accent carpet tiles we use, enhance the design of every space and are great building blocks for inspiration. The biggest change factor that comes into play on each of the floors is the difference in finishes. The diverse finishes, textures, shapes, and colors add uniqueness to each floor and creates the end users’ desired sense of individuality.
Before beginning the company refresh, our team took into strong consideration the way in which every company user group works and the spaces they require to best suit their inspirational needs; adding in many open booths, open and enclosed collaboration areas, and quiet zones, where tenants can stretch out in a singular booth seat and work for the day, spawns a creative environment perfect for this company’s user groups. The idea is to know what the company needs and use that knowledge to plan and develop a successful and varied space. We have since found that these newly created spaces are very successful for the company and are getting used continually throughout the day
