The design team retained access to the building’s atrium and skylight, to preserve sight lines, and sound of the water feature below, while upholding GWL RA’s role as the landlord of the building. The reception, conference room, and lunchroom promote contact among teams, while workspaces are now flexible with careful consideration to acoustics.
