This space houses the corporate headquarters for a young company that is developing new technology for concrete. The objective was to design a think tank that would encourage interaction and reflect the innovative green products that they are developing.

The Felderman Keatinge + Associates (FKA) firm created an open, fluid and minimalist space that became a blank slate for interaction of employees and fostering innovative thinking. Upon entering the space, the visitor is brought directly into the center of the “hub”, interacting and immediately becoming a part of the group. Rather than a traditional reception desk and waiting area, a long work surface was designed to provide layout space for the company’s products and function as a conference table. By juxtaposing sculptural and refined architectural elements against the exposed mechanical system and raw concrete flooring FKAwere able to cerate a space that expresses the “quality and raw” nature of their product.
