Based in Seattle, Washington, Slalom is a consulting firm with offices in many major cities across the nation. When the time came to move the local DC office, they relocated to the booming Tysons Corner area with a prominent space in Tyson Tower overlooking the retail center.
Working closely with the Slalom team, Interplan designed a compact layout of clustered benching stations alongside open teaming and collaboration nodes. The intimate working environment is dispersed with multiple meeting rooms for sharing ideas. For more private conversations, there are several isolated phone ‘booths’ for individual use. A circular ceiling drum divided by a media wall defines the open collaboration areas.
Interplan’s creative designers worked diligently to promote the casual branding that Slalom wanted to infuse throughout the new space. Polished concrete floors, exposed concrete columns & slab ceilings and surface mounted conduits give the space an industrial feel. Saturated colors and rustic wood planking reinforce this attitude. The lunchroom anchors one end of the open studio and features ‘live’ edge detailing on a walnut slab bar. All these elements contribute to the full effect the client desired for their new space.
