Notes of Interest

The client is one of America’s leading providers of mailing lists, marketing data, sales leads, and research data. The client’s challenge to the architect was to create a fresh new design for their office that expresses who they are.

The organizational strategy was to create a centrally located circulation core that sets the mood for the office and connects all of the spaces together. The design energy and most of the $28 per square foot budget was focused on three elements: an etched glass conference room wall expressing the company’s data, a cut and bent wall/ceiling form which connects the office together, and galvanized metal shed wall panels to express both ideas of technology and the Midwest rural vernacular of the company’s founding location.

JURY COMMENTS


The articulation stands up because, like the data, it has purpose - avoiding willful form making - and creates a powerful gesture. The project is massaged just enough - any more would be too much, any less would be trite.

The team was careful to balance background with foreground, color and lack of color, to allow the space to have a romantic notion about it and treat light successfully. The project is well executed with a certain level of craft, the details are nice, clean, and edgy, yet a fun work environment. For data farmers, the result is unexpected and pulls together what they do – a homerun.
