A blended office, showroom, and warehouse that features workplace design and strategy through private offices, open plans, and collaborative vignettes.
American Interiors desired a modern space more in-line with their vision for the future. A hybrid concept of office space and showroom was designed by Neumann/Smith that promoted the company’s branding while creating a living gallery for potential clients to see functionality and choose the right products for their needs.
The exterior features a striking metal roof with a monolithic pitch, fiber cement wood-look panels, large scale windows that allow for maximum natural light into the space, and an exterior patio for gatherings and break areas. An important design feature was the seamless transition between the office/showroom space and the attached warehouse.
The interior features exposed ceilings, ducts, and columns blended with high-end finishes to create a beautiful exposed industrial look. Along the main open-office area, the space includes private offices, conference/training rooms, open huddle spaces, two kitchens, an interior library, a “living room,” a virtual reality center, and flexible vignettes throughout to show how products can work in various markets. Large scale murals/graphics are displayed on the dividing wall between the office/showroom and warehouse, while a 1,500 sf mezzanine with laser cut metal guard rails acts as a recreation area for employees.
