On the corner of Robinson and Garland street is a small two story building that has gone under some radical changes. Originally owned by the Women’s Trail Group, the building was purchased by another attorney. The enter interior of the first and second floors were torn down. The carpet was ripped out and replaced with dark wood flooring. Brick was purchased from an old torn down building in Chicago and used for the bottom floor wall.
The original lighting was very dark and gloomy. Most of the lighted areas only occurred when the sun was hitting the office around 3pm. Not a incredibly pleasant work environment so everything had to go.
The lighting was replaced with fine chandelier decorations and overhead fluorescent bulbs. The bulbs in the chandelier were retrofitted with energy efficient LED lighting. Now when the lights are turned on, people in the office can actually see what they are doing.
Since the walls were torn down there was an issue with not having access to privacy for a conference room. The building is not very large so we wanted to utilize as much open space as possible. A large glass divider was installed with double doors that swing freely into the conference room.
Edit: The Freedom Law Firm have since updated the exterior with all brick. Pictures coming soon.
