The Project develops a 20 ksf flat corner lot to include a 9,000 square foot single story building and grounds for use as the Ownerĺs claims office designed by Ricky G. Mason, AIA for Collaborative Design Architects.
The design parti is composed of multiple rectangular shapes offset to one another to separate the public reception area and conferencing rooms from the staff open office work area and private offices. The interior design features use of a rich material palette of terrazzo and glass block in the public reception areas and high volumetric up-lit ceilings in the staff work areas. The exterior design displays the offset rectangular plan of the interior parti to locate the building form at the street corner and shield the parking lot from view; introduction of a bold color palette creates a visually interesting architectural street fašade.
