The Nuclear Energy Institute (NEI), a policy organization for the nuclear energy and technologies industry, wanted its new headquarters to reflect the organization’s updated brand identity and vision: Clean Air Energy. A challenge was creating an environment that felt open within an organization that primarily utilized closed offices.
Our design concept manifests energy in the physical environment through dramatic colors and bold finishes. We leveraged NEI’s signature blue for a branded, energizing space. Large graphics depict NEI’s clean energy vision and leadership in the commercial nuclear power industry. LED lighting and vivid lines convey a sense of energy and carry the design concept throughout each space. Natural elements, such as wood and stone, and formative materials, such as metal and glass suggest the relationship between nature and technology inherent in NEI’s industry.
The Nuclear Energy Institute’s new office goes beyond the aesthetics. Our team created smaller, private offices, enabling more square footage in collaborative areas. By using all glass office fronts, we created a space that feels open, inviting, and luminous.
