The Council for the Accreditation of Educator Preparation (CAEP) hired FOX Architects to design their new office as they relocated from an older building to a newly renovated office building. Their new location had limited space, and our design team knew that taking on the smaller space would necessitate creative solutions.
The FOX Architects team responded to a challenging column span by wrapping each column in reclaimed, stacked wood to create seating nooks and credenza storage. We increased flexible conferencing areas by adding operable partitions and moveable tables, providing numerous configuration options. Educational graphics and book motif images reinforced the organization’s mission and provided a way-finding tool throughout the space.
CAEP’s new office space is highly functional within a smaller setting, and better reflects the organization’s mission and industry.
