This luxurious private office is in an 1870s historic gothic revival building in downtown Portland. In order to keep the office open-feeling we fulfilled the client’s requirement of two private offices by creating two glass cubes that align with the existing elevator shaft. We designed a wall of tall, gothic-inspired cabinetry that separates the main open office from a comfortable lounge while offering lots of storage. In the lounge we designed a comfortable sofa with a decorative walnut back and pale gold cotton velvet upholstery. The clients wanted a “feeling of separation” in the open office and so we designed a glass sculpture beautifully made by Portland glass artist Andy Paiko that divides the space in an elegant, playful way without closing it off too much.
