Tolleson, a nationally recognized graphic design firm, approached the architect with a simple design proposition: design an office that made sense graphically and three dimensionally without trend. No site had been selected and the architect analyzed several locations before a space in an historic Jackson Square building was recommended. A raw space with exposed materials, multiple skylights, and few interior walls provided the right canvas for this collaboration. The client wanted his new space to feel very open and serve as a neutral background for creating and presenting the firm's work. The building's exposed brick and timber ceiling give the space its texture while the new subtle colors complement the design and contribute to the overall composition of materials and design elements.
