When PMC approached Workstead to envision its new Raleigh headquarters, the contract furnishings company requested a new kind of office—a space that could not be summarily typecast as commercial, residential, or hospitality. Bucking the open-concept floor plan, we designed an interplay of rooms and portals that support both individual and community experiences.
Skylights are a major organizing feature of our new workplace concept. Immersing comfortable gathering spaces with overhead daylight ensures their use between meetings and other events. In the cozy bar, library, and work areas that straddle the naturally illuminated destinations, we specified tactile materials as well as our Lodge lighting, which both illuminate the spaces with warmth and underline their emphasis on human scale.
