Offer Webber Dern

This project entailed the complete build-out of raw office space for Offer/Weber/Dern, an entertainment law firm based in Beverly Hills. Included in the scope was the design of the conference room, the principal’s office and the design of furniture for the lobby. The client wanted a “residential feel”, which was achieved by the use of wood and partial height walls in the central areas. Translucent glass was used throughout in order to allow natural light from the exterior to fill the core of the building.

The office of an entertainment law firm was redesigned to be a warmer, more inviting workplace. The client wanted a “residential feel,” which was achieved by the use of rich wood throughout. Partial height walls in the central areas create a sense of prospect in the relatively small space, and allow for better natural light transmittance throughout. The inclusion of Translucent glass provides privacy for the lawyers while enabling daylight to illuminate the building core.
