Using space to tell a story

Most of the time you just step into an office. At greenbox-is, you go on a journey. That’s by design. Their team helps build sustainable office spaces. They figured if they were going to walk people through the design process, they were going to do it literally.

Enter the front door and there is a custom graphic treatment that tells visitors exactly where they are. Right down to longitude and latitude. Then its off to a boardroom with bespoke ceiling tiles and in-wall monitors. That’s how you make the most of a meeting. A timber frame huddle room offers privacy when needed, but a Leaf Folding Wall ® opens up possibilities as it opens up to the office.

This historic building offered pockets of space that the greenbox team turned into a series of vignettes. Whether they’re exploring modular power, custom millwork or imbedded tech, every step gives clients something to think about as they plan their perfect space. By the time the tour is over, they have walked the walk and greenbox has shown the power of a well-designed office. The Connecticut chapter of the American Institute of Architects was clearly into this. After seeing it, they gave the space a deserved business architecture award.

I wanted clients to walk into our [DIRTT Experience] Center and see it be a microcosm of their own floor plan.
