Santa Monica, CA

Wolcott was asked to transition the old-world traditional financial office with large private offices to a modern and hip environment for the new generation of young traders. We consolidated a fragmented, multi-floor financial firm in to a single open-plan floor. The updated space provided a collaborative work environment with shared views of the Pacific Ocean, Santa Monica, and the mountains beyond. We developed a space that hosted their world-class art collection in gallery niches along the core to be seen and appreciated by all. Formerly, the design included architectural elements that highlighted angles and view corridors echoing their business moniker. Vintage Furniture pieces were used to accent the clean and contemporary space. Eat Boys, An integral part of the clients business, contains specialized lighting designed to illuminate the typically darker rooms.
