This Friday, we’re flashing back to 1999 when we designed Boston law firm Lawson & Weitzen’s harbor front office space. The firm’s prime spot on Black Falcon Pier offered a natural ambience for us to develop a space reminiscent of the workplace views.
We chose a design scheme that would be simple and complementary to the large span of windows frequented throughout the space offering amazing waterfront views. This is especially evident in the practice’s employee lounge, where we optimized natural light using the high ceilings and natural wood tones of furniture, juxtaposed against the ocean hue beyond.
Because of the firm’s location, we wanted to carry subtle maritime undertones throughout our design plan. This is exemplified in the reception area where exposed piping and cylindrical support beams, are faintly indicative of an old steamship.
The interior windows are cut in geometric shapes to add movement and draw the eye in various directions enhancing the subtle grace of the design scheme. Meanwhile, the private offices contain artwork with understated aquatic patterns and images.
