What were the special elements of the project?:
This is us! Being our own client and having so many talented architects and designers on our team provided the platform to create a grand vision for our space – a vision that met our needs as well as a space tailored to help us meet our clients’ needs. We wanted our office to be a showroom and a place of inspiration for our clients. Throughout the space you will experience different kinds of floor patterns, finishes, building systems and work settings. One unique way we were able to implement this was in our bathrooms, which traditionally have no return on investment. We designed individual unisex restrooms, each displaying different products and various ways that tile and fixtures can be used. Our team came up with a creative way to have an efficient plumbing system as well as a space to showcase to our clients. We also wanted to have a variety of dedicated collaborative spaces to encourage inspiration not only for our team, but for our clients as well. Phone pods, banquettes, and a ping pong table were all chosen to blur the lines between work and play, infusing our office with a bustling energy.
Family is an important part of the culture here at triARC. It was therefore a part of our vision to include a comfortable, private room for employees’ visiting family members or where nursing mothers could take care of their little ones.
Additionally, we created a dedicated recycling center. Commonly tucked out of sight, ours sits in the midst of the studio, wrapped in a bright graffiti wallpaper with the graphic recycling logo. This functional space doubles as a bold design element, showcasing our value of green building design and living in a light-hearted and fun manner.
We have found that the smallest of details can make the biggest impact, helping us meet our clients’ needs. Not only have we designed our office to show the distinctive ways we bring our values to life, but have also built into our design ways to help clients visualize their own dreams. This is seen in the different finishes and work spaces we have throughout the office as well as a unique column graphic we created that demonstrates what different ceiling heights feel like or how different sizes of furniture work in relation to height of the room. We’d love for you to come by and see the many small details that have truly transformed our office into an interactive and inspirational creative space!
