When Schwartz Sladkus Reich Greenberg Atlas acquired a prominent divorce firm, it went on the hunt for a new office. Working with designer Tamara Eaton, our team created a space that differs from the wood-paneled work environment of a typical law office. Instead, this office has pale gray porcelain floor tiles, carpeting, walnut wood doors and desks, and occasional pops of color.
The reception area is open, with mid-century modernist furniture and a backlit sign behind the reception desk. We put in a black metal staircase between the two office floors, with a brightly spattered painting hanging above. There are also small, abstract wooden sculptures, done by Sladkus’ mother, in the reception area and downstairs kitchenette.
On the lower level, we built out a kitchen accented with a red wall, white subway tile backsplash, and walnut chairs and cabinets. We left the white-painted ductwork of the ceilings exposed, giving the office a casual, industrial vibe. A stripped, black metal structural column with rivets also contributes to the relaxed atmosphere.
