SEA collaborated closely with Christenson Electric Inc. to understand the evolving office operations and staff needs at the company headquarters. Our resulting renovation design facilitates intuitive circulation of people throughout the office and recognizes the range of purposes the updated building needs to serve. Our client also identified the importance of a mix of public and private spaces. To meet this need, SEA incorporated both open and closed workspaces and layers of public-facing and internal-only zones – a new entryway, entry procession, reception area, and a feature conference room serve as welcoming and prioritizing guests. The renovation’s internal-only elements include not only an expansion of workspace, but also staff break areas, formal and informal meeting places, and an outdoor courtyard.
