When the attorneys at Joseph, Greenwald and Lakke approached Interplan to design their new office space in Rockville, MD they told us that wanted a space that didn’t feel like the typical attorneys’ office of yesteryear; no federalist style furniture, green lamps and wood molding details. They wanted a space that was sophisticated and light, warm, yet professional.
The client was very interested in using a wood ceiling element in the reception desk which acted as the jumping off point for the overall palate. We knew that the client wanted a neutral space, so texture and movement became an important element in the finish palate. The caramel colored burl veneer reception desk front acts as a nice accent to the ceiling design, which compliments the marble transaction top. The polished porcelain stone floor has a subtle movement which adds a visual interest that is picked up in the movement in linen patterned wall covering.
The concept of texture and movement is carried throughout the space. Curved pendant light fixtures which provide fluorescent up lighting and halogen monopolists were installed in the conference room. The paralegals sit at work stations which have frosted glass to provide a bit of privacy, in an otherwise open space. While the space is mostly void of bold pattern, a touch of pattern was added to the floor tile design in the auxiliary spaces such as the work and copy areas.
