Moving into a building originally constructed in the late 80’s and stripping it back to the original studs and classic wood floors. Tangram Studio partnered with Gensler in Los Angeles to design a raw industrial feel that matched the building restored historic appearance. Using vintage doors in varies colors Tangram Studio created an eclectic vibe throughout the space. Each workstation was designed to feature height adjustability, multiply surfaces and hot rolled steel bases. A storage credenza sits at the end of every desk to minimize the appearance of under mounted wiring and support beams. As a part of Alexandria’s change management program, each employee could select from 4 different types of credenza to select the storage unit that best supports their individual work style.
