Reimagining A Law Firm’s Workspace
1401 NEW YORK AVE NW, WASHINGTON, DC
Client: Boies Schiller Flexner, Washington, DC
Goal: A modern consolidated workplace located strategically near the National Mall
Status: Phase 1 Completed 2017. Phase 2 Underway 2018
FIRST IMPRESSIONS MATTER
Visitors to the firm are greeted in a reception area where a custom, baffled aluminum wall bearing the firm’s new Schiller Projects-designed logo rises through three levels… a custom staircase and bridge structure…longer views through the workspace…and expansive views of the city outside.
Historically DC office buildings suffer from low ceiling heights, so we also designed a custom metal mesh ceiling throughout and lit the space above to softly glow. As people move beneath, the ceiling appears to transform from opaque to open and back again, elevating one’s sense of height and space while introducing an element of intrigue.
