North Coast Energy
This project encompassed a build-out of shelled space to accommodate the growing oil and gas exploration company. A major design component involved unifying the upper floor – also designed by Hasenstab Architects – with the new space on the floor below. A monumental stair structure, as well as similar interior design elements, tie the existing lobby to the new office space.
A strong circulation hallway – accented by lighted niches – improves traffic flow between enclosed offices, which are situated around the perimeter of the floor, and the engineering workroom / open office spaces that occupy the interior. A bold color palette infuses the space with lively character, while industrial touches like exposed ceilings and metal work give the office an exciting edge.
