Deriving from principals of the European design model, the Perkins Coie law office prototype incorporates a number of strategies to achieve flexible planning and energy efficiencies.

The interior architecture emphasizes the buildings curved exterior curtain wall and high ceilings which are a result of the underfloor technology integral to the building. Planning concepts are flexible in anticipation of future change in practice groups, growth and workstyle, and are achieved within the strategically developed modules of workplace and telecom/data infrastructure standards. The use of the building’s interior depth to provide spacious, convenient and concealed work areas for each pair of administrative assistants reinforces the democratic array of service and support necessary to law firm planning. Traditional stone floors and wood paneling have been traded for natural and renewable materials. Modular bamboo floors provide a warm and elegant base for limestone mosaics, glass tile, and farmed figured maple. The bamboo flooring and easily reconfigured carpet tiles provide full access to the infinitely adaptable underfloor air and wiring infrastructure. The multi-layered lighting design utilizes daylight, high performance direct/indirect fluorescent fixtures and custom “glow forms” to provide diffuse illumination, enhance the high ceiling volume, and to increase natural brightness throughout the space. Imbuing law firm design with sustainable methods and convertible, versatile planning concepts shows NELSON’s knowledge of law firm design and the responsibility inherent in planning and building tenant space.

The seamless flow of activity, technology, and image in this refined interior reinforces the tangible value of environmental and aesthetic criteria and its impact on interior design.
