In this law office the perimeter space was limited and the views poor. The conference areas and library were placed at the center to free up the perimeter. We used etched glass with a minimum detail around the conference areas to give a bright, light and airy feeling without giving away the limited views.

The library was a low, central and unenclosed millwork assembly that allowed people to look over it but permitted storage and easy consultation. The library became the heart of the office around and through which everyone moved.

CLA was associated with Jeffrey English for this project. Jayne and Joan Michaels contributed to the furnishings.
