When the quickly growing investment bank and asset management firm Piper Jaffray outgrew their Boston office, the turned to Fusion design their new space. As a national company, they had developed some standards for the overall aesthetic of their offices. Fusion was charged with combining these more traditional materials with modern and playful features.
One of Piper Jaffray’s biggest concerns was not having the standard “flat” glass office fronts. It was crucial for Fusion to create something three-dimensional and unique at the face of all enclosed rooms. The result was a custom wood veneer surround that acts as a frame to enhance the beautiful downtown and water views from the 33rd floor. Adding to the three-dimensional concept is the custom ceiling design at the reception area. Instead of a standard flat drywall ceiling, Fusion envisioned a dynamic, volumetric feature with integrated lighting. The “slats” bring in the idea of wood planks but in an abstract, unexpected way.
