Scott and Hespen Law
Law Office Design
Looking for Lawyer Office Interior Design?
The legal partners of this law firm were poised for growth and needed a space to reflect the direction of evolution they envisioned. With this, they also acquired an adjacent space within their office building which would ultimately double their usable office space. The challenge was not only to update their brand and space but to also come up with a fresh office layout plan that would suit their clean new esthetic.
UNUSUAL DESIGN CRITERIA OR RESTRICTIONS
CHALLENGE: The historic building was graced with large skylights which landed in unfortunate areas within the current office. It was in need of our small lawyer office design service.
SOLUTION: The new office space was configured with the skylights in mind making them not only an interesting architectural feature but allowing the quality daylight to enter the space in a very pleasing and balanced way.
CHALLENGE: The attorneys wanted to have an elegant, yet slightly out-of-the-box esthetic.
SOLUTION: The palette was designed around sophisticated wood and tweed patterns with the added twist of a regal plum. From a color psychology perspective, plum promotes harmony of the mind and emotions, contributing to mental balance and peace of mind, making it the perfect accent for a legal practice focused on estate planning.
CHALLENGE: The partners felt restricted and confined by their current office space and wanted a fresh take to get new energy in their daily work.
SOLUTION: The newly acquired space was great for potential but if not added in a refined way would simply look like an add. The reception space was moved to the center of the two newly adjoined spaces making for a composed entrance and a new perspective on what the space had once been.
CHALLENGE: The building owners had given a conservative budget for the remodel and “joining” of the two spaces.
SOLUTION: While still taking on a completely fresh take on the space existing walls were kept whenever possible and doors and windows of the space were repurposed to support the new design.
CHALLENGE: The building, while character-rich, had many old structural maladies including significantly sloping floors.
SOLUTION: flexible materials were used on the floors and bases. Also, a dominant large-scale linear design pattern was used on the floor to allow the eye to “float” past the inconsistencies of the floor while visually connecting the pattern.
