The Challenge

EVPA’s team needed a space that would enable them to expand and provide enhanced functionality through meeting rooms and phone booths. They also wanted to show their brand personality and highlight their mission to accelerate social progress, fix inequalities and injustices, and preserve the planet.

As they share their space with a sister philanthropic association, we also needed to ensure both teams would feel at home.

The Outcome

Taking nature as a source of inspiration, we designed the boardroom around a beautiful French oak table made by a local wood artisan. We chose the blue color for the chairs to reflect EVPA’s branding. We also included many biophilic details to open up the space and create a light feeling.

Like most organizations, EVPA needed a space where they could do their deep work. With its library-like feel and no phone calls allowed, the focus room is the ideal spot for that. But we didn’t want it to feel closed off and isolated from the rest of the floor, so we added windows to the interior walls adjacent to the open workspace.

Custom-made wood partitions were added to the room to continue the natural and biophilic theme and provide privacy while letting light pass through.
