Worklofts, formal offices, co-working spaces, open plan, private office…
What would you like your workspace to be?
Our team will work with you to take a careful inventory of what your team needs to do amazing work. Just like designing your home, designing the space where you spend a sizable part of your week is essential to ensuring that you are happy and healthy.
We take care to design office spaces that feel special, comfortable, and help reinforce your brand identity. They are spaces that should be at once functional and comfortable. Often, they form a key part of the impression a client or customer will have of your company.
We’ll work with you to ensure that all your needs are met — from spaces to host events, to unique employee amenities, to comfortable and productive workspaces — and together we will design an office space that helps make your work day enjoyable.
Is my TI budget too tight?
We work with tight budgets all the time. Whatever your budget is, we will be honest with you about what you can accomplish, and help you make strategic choices to stretch as much out of it as you can.
Can we stay open during this project?
Maybe? This all comes down to the extent of your project and your tolerance for construction noise and dust. It’s possible you’ll want (or need) to move out, at least for certain phases. We can help you navigate this schedule to minimize its impact on your business.
What if we don’t know what our “style” is?
Don’t worry! We work with companies that have run the gamut from, ”This is exactly what we want, we will be involved with every decision, and here is our branding package," to “Help us please, we‘re totally lost.” Wherever you fall, the design process will help us find the solutions you need, even if you didn’t know what the problem was.
Here are some highlights from our commercial office portfolio.
This commercial office design project for a boutique real estate firm, Capital Pacific, added a Pacific Northwest touch to a great mid-century commercial building. Original architectural elements like glulam beams and a CMU wall were exposed and refinished to reinforce the existing midcentury character.
The Office at Ada’s
Ada's Technical Book & Café returned to Board & Vellum for the design of their co-working space for local entrepreneurs fostering small businesses: The Office at Ada’s. With this new activity on site, the entire Ada's campus has resulted in the nearly continuous use of the property, a great asset for Capitol Hill.
Ballard Work Loft
This tenant improvement project for a Ballard work loft created a laid-back, yet professional atmosphere enjoyed by employees and clients alike. On a limited budget, we crafted custom furniture from door slabs, reused salvaged wood, and furniture from their previous office in New York City.
