Commercial Office Design

Capital Pacific

A commercial office upgrade in a mid-century building.

This commercial office design project for a boutique real estate firm represents the fortunate opportunity to work with a vibrant, growing company, while remodeling a great mid-century commercial building.

The design revolves around opening up the existing floor plan to allow for a more flexible layout capable of hosting informal business gatherings.

The new conference room flows through a lounge area, and connects to the open office workstations, which are bathed in natural light from the continuous perimeter windows. Spaces overlap and communicate through the use of glass storefront partitions and oversized interior openings. Feature elements, like the random clad maple wood wall, provide a unique sense of place while reinforcing the company's brand identity.

Careful location of office functions separate the formal areas from a “back of house” that includes a generous eat-in kitchen and new ADA-accessible bathroom with a shower. As part of the design, original architectural elements like glulam beams and a CMU wall are exposed and refinished to reinforce the existing midcentury character.
