LoCorr Funds, an investment firm, chose to purchase a new location to house their corporate headquarters in the summer of 2017. Our clients for this project desired an open and collaborative workspace within the building which was once a Polynesian restaurant before being converted to an event space. The interior still retained many of the details original to the restaurant, including an aged timber framed ceiling, and obtrusive masonry fireplace, and solid partition walls that were antithetical to the open office concept desired. We reconfigured the entry sequence and by removing the existing fireplace and utilizing glass partition walls throughout, the space has evolved into a light-flooded office that feels inviting and inclusive. Sand blasting the interior ceiling revealed a beautiful wood canopy, balanced by contemporary accents including stainless steel cable railings, flexible furniture systems, and strategic pops of blue color that represent the LoCorr brand and define separate spaces of the office. U+B coordinated the structural engineering required to remove a section off the main level floor to enable relocation of the primary vertical circulation, taking advantage of a large skylight directly above that brings light into the core of the building. The lower level now houses a critical division of the company while remaining well-connected to the other divisions housed on the level above.
