The client is a contemporary law firm who was focused on creating both a welcoming and high-end environment for their new offices in downtown Boston. Elegant and well-tailored, the office is complete with architectural and millwork details that add richness to the surfaces. The lighting was designed to reinforce these details through integration and alignment that create deliberately subtle shades of white and introduces complementary decorative elements that accessorize and add sparkle.

The office is primarily composed of both private offices and open workspaces, conference rooms, common areas and specialty cafes. A special “client-facing” floor was also included in the design with a lobby, larger conference rooms, and flexible training spaces.  Diffuse lighting both from indirect sources and backlit translucent stretched fabric membranes, along with direct light sources, creates a pleasing and bright environment. Additionally, the client has a large art collection that required curating focused light almost every location of artwork, treating the corridors as an art gallery.
