The client wanted a creative, collaborative, open environment for their employees at One Atlantic Center. With its close proximity to the Georgia Institute of Technology campus, the Class A office space spans five floors in the 50-story iconic skyscraper. It serves as an extension of the company’s operations and joins the other metro Atlanta locations. This space accommodates IT, data/analytics, marketing, and finance employees.
Designed to have a modern feel with soft sleek accents, floors 20 and 21 include reception areas, large conference rooms with complete AV capabilities, open and closed office spaces, and the Hub where people gather to eat. A monumental stair connects these two floors to create flow.
The design team had an incredible vision if using forms as sculptural elements in the reception and hub areas. Meeting with the designers and the millworker early in the process ensure the understanding of the vision and success of the forms construction. The forms are constructed of solid surface material with varying angles and joints, yet still seamless – creating an iceberg-like structure.
So grand in size, these icebergs were assembled on-site and were carefully orchestrated piece-by-piece due to limited elevator space.
Permitting and scheduling
The permitting for the space was challenging, which in turn compressed the schedule. Even with the delays, the whole project was completed on time!
