Our objective was two-fold: to transform Lawline's office from an old-school law firm to an innovative and collaborative workspace; and to upgrade their video production and broadcast facilities.
Lawline faced a business decision common to many of our clients. They could stay and renovate their existing space or move into a new office. That was where our job began. Bert Rosenblatt of VICUS PARTNERS, brought us in to assist with the decision process. Bert, a real estate agent we’ve worked with in the past, showed Lawline several potential offices. Lovely as they were, we saw enormous potential in Lawline's existing space. Yes, it was set up like a conservative law firm - but with a good design we believed we could turn it around and save Lawline the cost of moving and take advantage of the sweet deal the landlord was offering them to stay.
We collaborated with the building's architect to create a light filled open plan office environment. We removed the walls and exposed the space to natural light from the large surrounding windows. The building’s contractor then installed glass walls between the common area and adjacent offices, giving Lawline's entire team access to panoramic views of downtown Manhattan. Finally, we integrated new, modern pieces into the existing furniture mix to revitalize the reception area, conference and breakout rooms, video production studio, and remaining office space.
Lawline's new offices are light, modern and efficient and serve their tech based work style. Notable design features include the fully functional video production studio with its half-moon desk, a large open space with 50 benching workstations, comfortable lounge areas, and plenty of natural light. We've created an environment that is as relaxed as it is productive - a key combination to making any office space a place where people like to spend their time and get down to work.
