ZEAL FINANCIAL SUITES

ZEAL FINANCIAL SUITES

Asked to create a financial office that catered to musicians and artists led to a dynamic steel infused multi-floor design solution. Cold rolled steel cladded walls slice through the concrete floors of the turn of the century warehouse building to designate different functions of the space. Walls pivot and open to create large meeting areas and open vistas throughout the space add visual interest. This project received an AIA Design Award.
