Law Office Design

Dentons Law Office
Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada

“We believe that our premises are something to be proud of and are a critical cornerstone of our people-focused strategy.”

John Sandrelli
Partner, Dentons

Dentons’ Vancouver office embodies this business law firm’s commitment to innovation, collaboration and sustainability.

HOK’s team designed the space to benefit everyone in the organization. The engaging, light-filled space projects the image of a warm, progressive practice.

A circular staircase links all four floors, encouraging communication and providing a dramatic transition for clients as they move from the reception area to meeting rooms. A café shared by lawyers and support staff, coffee bars and lounges on all four levels, and an outdoor patio all encourage interaction.

The design incorporates a range of sustainable strategies. Natural light throughout the space accommodates each employee’s “right to light” while maintaining visual privacy and taking advantage of the spectacular mountain and waterfront views.
