BP America, Inc.

Location: Washington, DC
Project Size: 22,000 sf

The government affairs office for this Fortune 100 company, wanted to convey a progressive, welcoming feeling to staff and visitors alike. They were migrating from a closed office environment to an open model. Workstations with higher panels were used to provide a greater sense of privacy, but were designed in glass. Team rooms, informal lounge areas, and a large pantry/living room were designed to provide the staff with a variety of working environments. The main design element through the space is the photomosaic wall, which serves as the thread that ties the office together and allows visitors and employees the opportunity to interact with BP’s corporate culture. The photomosaic is comprised of 616,896 individual images culled from BP’s archives.

This project earned a LEED-CI Platinum Certification from the USGBC, becoming just the second space in the region and 13th in the country to do so.
