Shook, Hardy & Bacon, a Washington, DC law firm, relocated to a new office space and wanted an environment that could attract and retain talented attorneys, express their time-honored image, and modernize the way they work.
The FOX Architects team balanced the firm’s traditional image within a more modern work environment. We designed spaces to promote employee interaction and collaboration, including an open pantry, a coffee bar adjacent to the reception area, and team gathering zones. The conference area was designed as a hub for clients and visitors. An open atrium in the center of the space features a connecting stair and allows natural light into the office.
Shook, Hardy & Bacon’s new office space has significantly increased day-to-day collaboration among its employees and helped reenergize its culture. The office has also been an effective tool for attracting and retaining staff.
