Elemental Architecture Offices

Elemental’s studio is based on a Modernist sensibility executed within a restrained materials & color palette. The former industrial space is conceived as an open office that engages the neighboring urban landscape of rooftop structures. The design maximizes daylight and views to the city along its three exposures, inviting a dynamic interplay between the reflectivity of glass surfaces and the transparency between discrete spaces. A modular Knoll furniture system provides uniformity & fl exibility between workstations at all staff levels, while automated shading modulates solar patterns and controls associated heat gain. The fast-track project - design, approvals & construction in 12 weeks - including new HVAC systems, lighting, furniture & finishes was completed for less than $100/SF.
