D’Arcy Jones Architects completed a renovation of a 106-year-old space. This renovation focused on building a sculptural light-filled liner. With thrift, four layers of old construction and modifications were left untouched. All of the desks are simple glulam beams laid on their sides, all of the fixtures are custom made from raw steel, and the monolithic cabinetry is made from practical and cost-effective plastic laminate. The service spaces feel dark, hefty, and crude, to contrast with the glowing, faceted and crisp workspaces.
