With the expansion of the group practice, Method Design was tasked with evolving the original design with its focus on light and visual access, while still committing to the high-performance needs of acoustic separation and speech privacy. The new location had the additional difficulty of providing little to no natural light. The solution was found by providing a well-light lobby space, that uses a vaulted ceiling transitioning into the office spaces, to bring soft reflected light into what are otherwise office without windows. This vault provides a spatial access organizing condition to the rooms, while mimicking an exterior natural light condition.
