Size: 72,285 SF

Our task was to combine the industrial aesthetic of a turn-of-the-century warehouse with the new, sophisticated corporate image of an established law firm. To help maximize available daylight and views, a raised floor system effectively “lowered” high windows. Below floor space was utilized to efficiently distribute power, data, phone and HVAC.
