Podesta Group, Washington, DC
Moving Podesta Group, a government and public relations firm, from a completely closed plan and traditional, dark wood aesthetic to a more progressive plan and modern, open aesthetic was one of the challenges for the design team. When the firm consolidated onto two contiguous floors in the connecting building, the design team recognized the opportunity to create a cohesive corporate brand, as well as incorporate more progressive workplace concepts. The design team created the entire space as one large sculptural element. Upon entry to the space is a custom reception desk, interconnecting stair, and corridors that are designed as flexible gallery space.
