Interplan’s best Client relationships are inevitably those in which our Client shares with us many of the same work ETHICS and VALUES. This might explain our 20+ year engagement with RSM. It could simply be that they are great people to work with. There is an inclusive culture within RSM, and letting it inspire our design solutions is a recipe for success.
In 2019 Interplan designed RSM’s new San Diego offices, at Torrey Point. Every RSM office design works to support RSM’s values of Inclusion, Diversity and local Culture. The San Diego office design took advantage of its location near the coastline to draw inspiration and take advantage of the ocean views. Starting with the reception area, glass partitions allow direct sight lines to Torry Point Beach.
The integration of daylight throughout the space has become a guiding principle in the design of RSM’s offices. The configuration of the suite allowed Interplan to design an open space that spans from front to back of the entire building, thus allowing daylight penetration throughout. Lighting design also incorporated directional patterns of light reinforcing the connection to the outside views of the ocean. The color hues of the space took inspiration from the shore including tones of distressed wood, earth-tone browns and blue skies.
This project has been awarded Honorable Mention for lighting design from the District of Columbia Chapter of the Illuminating Engineering Society.
