We converted the office from a retail warehouse, whose high ceilings and stark exterior were in contrast to the organization’s values of passion and connection. Our design creates a welcome plaza out front, complete with NGHS’s brand and signature stone accents. To repurpose the warehouse’s garage area, we turned it into a corporate food court, retaining the overhead garage doors so it could transform into indoor/outdoor space.
This adaptive reuse project created a vibrant, contemporary office to meet the client’s future workflow goals. Its primary focus is to facilitate inter- and intradepartmental collaboration, so we included multi-function rooms and open, shared spaces. By using a Lean design process, the flexible building maximizes resources and minimizes waste. As departments grow and expand, the design plan will adapt to changing needs.
