“If you want to see what a modern traditional office looks like, this is it. Lawyers, accountants and other professionals that need a nice office space that isn’t too ‘out there’ can take inspiration from the Stuart Foundation’s offices.”
HOK led an off-site discovery workshop in which the foundation’s staff decided the headquarters should provide generous public spaces as well as smaller personal spaces. The design team translated this organizational change into a plan that links private spaces through the public spaces, encouraging interaction.
Because the Stuart Foundation’s program requirements did not support a full floor, the design included an incubator space for its partner organizations in child welfare and education. This flexible space provides collaborative, hotel-type workstations and offices.
Other public spaces include a multimedia conference room that opens to the adjacent reception area for entertainment functions, a large project work room and a staff commons with a full pantry, casual seating and portable whiteboard/flip chart technology.
