This project allowed Tantillo Architecture to revisit and earlier project of ours completed fifteen years before to refresh/reconfigure the interior office environment of the top two floors with an eye towards current work-life trends. The private equity real estate client sought to create an open office space with all glass office fronts to maximize vistas to the city skyline beyond with a variety of collaborative meeting areas. To highlight the nature of their real estate business, the lobby became an interactive marketing area utilizing video monitors, virtual reality goggles, and physical models.
As a company that invests substantially in real estate markets around the country, Tantillo Architecture chose to emphasize architectural materiality in the project to convey quality and value. With this strategy in mind, Tantillo Architecture collaborated with local fabricator Amuneal in designing a custom faceted steel feature wall in the reception area that sets the stage for richness of materials utilized in the project. Hundreds of angled sheet metal modules were CNC-formed and a custom mounting method was employed to create a unique wall texture, floor to ceiling. The top floor was converted into a true amenity floor with fitness, game room, expanded kitchen and various meeting rooms to provide for flexible configurations for staff and events.
