Category: commercial interior. Client: greg(g)-horgan architecture. April 2015. A 15,700 square foot build-out for an internationally known nonprofit. The organization was moving from just a few blocks away, but the new space was a world of difference. Their old offices had a traditional layout, with offices for senior staff and high-walled cubicles for the rest of the staff, plus a regular conference room. In the new space, staff work in flexible, open work spaces with desks that raise and lower electrically, allowing individuals to work while standing or sitting. Shifting away from traditional work spaces, the design instead offered a wide range of collaboration and work rooms, as well as private work and phone rooms. The conference center includes a large conference room, plus a break-out area with different kinds of seating.
