Seeing Workspace as a Home Away from Home

Cozy, contemporary rustic, and homey are words that have been used to describe the conversion of an office building and residence into the new global headquarters of a fast-growing financial services firm. Although atypical for this buttoned-up industry, the new Atlas Holdings LLC campus does embody the culture of this progressive, innovative organization focused on building business through collaboration and mutual respect.

What is more exciting than starting a new project? Helping a client to grow a business.

When we meet new clients, we learn how they work and plan for their future. Clients will often have a vision for how their company can grow. When a client shares all the ins and outs of an operation, including what is working for them and what is not, we are respectful of the trust that has been placed in us. We translate this information into design solutions. Spaces that help individuals to thrive and to be inspired become tools for a business to grow.
