One Legacy West
Gaedeke Group wanted a communal space in their new building that would appeal to a wide range of potential tenants – ranging from technology companies to law firms.
Starting with a blank slate, we created a minimalist, high-spirited, and sophisticated entryway and break area. We then incorporated dynamic offerings, including a coffee bar, an informal lounge outfitted with a ping-pong table, and a fitness center complete with a yoga studio, full-service locker rooms, and cardio equipment. To complement the multi-purpose lobby, we also designed a 3,000-square-foot cafe, Stir Eatery, to be open and inclusive. In order to divide these spaces up in a way that maintains the integrity of the open aesthetic, our design team used wood slats and glass walls to separate the lobby and amenity area into distinct zones without impacting sightlines.
Throughout the building, occupants feel energized and refreshed via daylight, sheltered areas, and the incorporation of natural materials and plants.
Stir Eatery is inspired by studies of the microscopic structure of fresh food. The team built a high, geometric ceiling to amplify those studies on a massive scale. The architecture is designed to serve as a symbol of the dining experience and to attract attention to and encourage interaction with the building’s architecture.
