From the architect. Modular Arts is a Seattle-based company that designs and produces technologically advanced gypsum based 3-dimensional wall panel materials used by designers worldwide.

 Their growing business recently relocated to a light-industrial building with accommodations for both office and manufacturing functions. Heliotrope Architects was brought in to collaborate on the office interior tenant improvement, which required replacement of all existing finishes, systems and furnishings.

The project had a very tight budget and was built by the Modular Arts crew rather than by a general contractor. Heliotrope’s strategy consisted of simple details, durable finishes and a liberal use of the company’s products - allowing the tenant-builder to execute the work within their comfort zone. Furnishings are mostly purchased second-hand, and the front desk sourced from a local wood salvage company.
