The design for Shatto Place takes cue from the existing architectural composition of the 2-story 1960’s building and updates the facade with a contemporary and activated aesthetic. The exterior improvements include a new storefront system along the street level, artistic graphic on the existing precast façade panels, and skylights over the second story office spaces. Interior improvements include a new kitchenette that doubles as a creative breakout space, central conference room, and private offices that borrow natural light from the open office areas. The glazed perimeters are reserved for open office layout.
The addition of new glazing at both levels promotes a fresh building identity and modern office experience, as well as an improvement to the pedestrian experience and revival of streetscape and neighborhood.
