Stuart Karten Design
This industrial and graphic design firm moved to a 3000 sqft space that required de-construction rather than a build-out. The new design involved removing walls to create an open work space, only the principal's office and conference room are enclosed. Suspended ceilings were ripped out to expose wood support beams and the carpet was removed and the concrete floors stained and sealed. Electrical conduit and ducts were also left exposed and industrial type fluorescent fixtures were suspended upside down to diffuse light. The low-tech natural materials create a muted backdrop for this high-tech design firm.
