Case study: Tri-Star Bank Trust

For this workplace design project, Tri-Star Bank Trust asked us to reinvent a ground level space that had been flooded. This tiny, 900 square-foot space only has one window, so the challenge was to make it feel high-class without the stigma of a dark basement.

They challenged us to fit three offices, two drop-in spaces, a conference room, and a common area with a kitchenette in their workspace. 

Over the eight-month project, we did everything from gathering permits, overseeing demo and construction, selecting design elements, and installing furniture. 

First, we selected a classic color palette with gold and black accents. All offices—including the drop-in spaces—received height-adjustable desks for convenience. 

Working within the tight quarters, we used lighting and glasswork to open up the space. 

  • Lighting: We used LED recessed can lighting to offer warmer, softer light that’s more welcoming and less institutional. Decorative pendant lighting and sconces add interest and a more residential feel.
  • Glass: To open up the long, skinny suite space, we added half-height glass along the corridor wall. We also used glass on the front of each office to open the place up.

We love how this space turned out! 

No matter your challenge, our team of design experts is ready to help.
