Situated in downtown New Orleans, AOS (Associated Office Systems) expanded and renovated their offices to a sleek and modern workplace showroom. Eskew+Dumez+Ripple, in association with Verges Rome Architects, designed the approximately 7,000 SF renovation with an expansion of 3,000 SF.
As a furniture dealer, AOS needed a space to reflect their trade and appeal to the various clients they serve. It was very important to the client to reflect a design that was beautiful, functional, and comfortable to their employees. The space has transformed from predominately red and black to white and lighter colors, enhanced by the building’s expansive windows flooding natural light into the space.
The project utilized the DIRTT (Doing It Right This Time), a custom pre-fabricated system, throughout the space. This allowed the total construction to be complete in only 6 weeks. The layout consists of an open office with workstations displaying the latest trends of the manufacturers they represent, conference rooms of various sizes to fit their specific needs, and phone rooms. A fully equipped Java Center showcases the DIRTT millwork capabilities and an open lounge area displays various furniture pieces in a space that can be transformed for large meetings, presentations, yoga, training, events, and more.Location: New Orleans, LA Map This Location
