How Art Makes a Space

By Rachel Molé

Not everyone who enters a space notices the flooring or furniture like designers do. But one thing most people notice is art.

Art adds color, movement, and dimension to otherwise blank walls. It can engage people in conversation and bring out people’s creativity and connectivity.

At a recent real estate law office renovation, we completely transformed the building’s dated interior and reconfigured the space to better meet the client’s needs. The first phase was to modify the layout and fit-out the space with new finishes, light fixtures, doors, and furniture. The space looked refreshed, bright, and modern, and the client was able to move in on time. To fully align the renovation with the client’s brand and further personalize the space, following this initial renovation phase we completed a second design phase to incorporate environmental graphics and artwork into the new office.
