This workplace for one of Revel’s long-time global clients needed to raise the bar for design. Finding an unfamiliar harmony between raw & polished materials helped define a truly unique aesthetic for the space. Now considered “the gold standard” within the organization, this office is the new benchmark to which all future projects will be compared to — and need to emulate.
As the client’s first move into Texas, which would soon become the location for one of their major headquarters, the office is strategically positioned in a prominent and highly visible location. With Frisco as the backdrop, the design team was determined to establish familiarity to the organization’s global headquarters in San Francisco while maintaining a local connection to the immediate surroundings of Texas.
Finding commonality in materials between San Francisco and Frisco, TX helped to bridge the gap and create a common architectural language. The most significant design gesture came in the form of a full masonry brick wall that was installed between reception and the all-hands/break area. The red brick of the wall is an identical match to the brick-clad exterior of their San Francisco office.
The design celebrates the juxtaposition of programming needs as well. C-level executive suites and a sports bar inspired break area aren’t typically matched in such proximity to each other, but a perfect balance was found between the two. Taking a less formal and more collaborative approach to the executive area brought ease to the traditionally rigid & serious space. Additionally, the team brought the most considerable attention to the smallest details in the break area, elevating it to a sophisticated yet-stylized space, that still felt casual and comfortable.
