TTV Architects, Inc. was involved in the remodeling of 800 sf of existing office space which included the expansion of the existing corridor and installing new storefront window assemblies and finishes. This corridor expansion included the conversion of five small offices into additional open space. The existing window assemblies were long and narrow, not taking advantage of the natural lighting and landscape. Therefore, a few were removed and replaced with larger storefront assemblies.
To give the space a sense of warmth and a clear visual separation between the corridor and the workspace, the structural columns, bracing, and ceiling system were enhanced with a rich wood veneer. The spacing of the structural elements naturally created bays, allowing for different types of furniture to be utilized. The remodeling encourages different types of faculty and student fraternization, ranging from individual work, to different sizes of group collaboration.
