Executive investment offices for a retired design entrepreneur, the founder of a national home furnishings retailer, provided the opportunity to leverage the client’s passion for clean, bold modern design into a dramatic, light-filled investment office environment showcasing the client’s extensive glass and ceramic art collection.

Inserted into a single-story, speculative office suite, the 7,500 sf facility is organized around three compositional elements: the colonnade, created by the building’s exposed structural steel columns and central ridge beam; full-height glass screen walls; and a custom maple “pavilion.”

The simple, classic interior composition of thin glass frames and bold, clear millwork forms rendered in a timeless color palette—all awash in natural light—creates a platform in which the appreciation of fine art, design, and nature enables a pioneering entrepreneur to continue his lifelong passion for creating business value through design.
