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 FOX Architects knew that taking on the smaller space would highlight the need for 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. The team also increased flexible conferencing areas by adding operable partitions and moveable tables to allow for maximum configuration. Educational graphics and book motif images reinforced the organization’s mission and provided a way-finding tool.
CAEP’s new office space is highly functional within a smaller setting, and better reflects the industry in which they work and support.
