Lateral files refinished to match the new wall and recessed to give foundation to a dedicated display wall which generously showcases the firm’s history with the Santa Fe Railroad. The firm’s museum quality, fin de siecle art collection was found in private offices and is now shared with all. Productivity increases and positioned for sale.

Clearly defined entry on elevator axis leads the visitor into the space, complemented by the artistically abstracted mechanics of the pipelines. Simple drywall detailing meets the budget with elegance. Company sold at profit.

An elongated custom millwork reception desk with continuous tempered glass transaction counter centers the reception area. The open planning concept continues through reception and conference zone.

Slightly lowered platforms of defined ceiling tile both reflect the ambient lighting and creatively serve the return air system. A stark white form reminiscent of the oil storage tanks, bookends each full floor plan. The lighting solution follows the implied telescoping stairs. Overall project size: 60,000 square feet.
