Segev LLP Offices

VANCOUVER
British Columbia

Executed in two phases, Carscadden worked with Segev LLP to convert what was previously an open design studio to a series of discrete offices that  - wait for it...  still felt like an open design studio. The program brief in this respect was a function of the often private and sensitive nature of legal work, and the young firm's ambition to not communicate the 19th Century feel that many law office do.

Challenge accepted!

MORE THAN CALM

Professional life is hurried and hectic. An essential aspect of a healthy work environment ameliorates this not just in its culture, but in the quality of its space.

Our goal here was to be more than just calm-under-pressure, but to allow creativity to happen in a space of calm. 

 

OLD/NEW WORLD

Early 20th Century buildings both accommodate and resist renovation. While they often provide plenty of natural light, nothing is level and they weren't built in anticipation of modern technology, with its cables and outlets, and mounting hardware.

The trick here was to expose the old and be as discrete as possible with the new.

"We practice an old profession with a modern approach and needed our offices to convey these abstract values in a tangible form so clients instantly know what we are about when they visit.

Mission accomplished!"
