American law firm

Law firm

An American law firm wanted to express its collective energy and the strength of its momentum with a development project. The project expresses openness, dynamism and a spirit of collaboration, both through the image projected and the organisation of space. All the workspaces are grouped together along a circulation axis dotted with support points: library, archives, printing areas, lunch room etc. By deploying a lively grid on the floor, this axis, which is over 70m long, is intended to be an assertive architectural statement. A hallmark of the practice, the pattern culminates in the reception screen. A reception that breaks with the traditional image of a law firm.
