Take a look back at the Sustainable category winner from the 2013 Interiors Awards: 22squared headquarters by Gensler.
In the renovation of the existing Atlanta office for a young advertising agency, Gensler reused the client’s existing furniture wherever possible and specified sustainable materials such as reclaimed wood for floors.
The designers removed many of the interior walls to create open collaborative spaces, furnished with benching, banquettes, and communal tables. Existing wood furniture such as barstools were given new life with fresh coats of paint in vibrant colors.
In the elevator lobby, a wall of undulating strips of recycled wood greets visitors.
Enclosed spaces were made transparent with glass walls, allowing for uninterrupted views and natural light.
Accessible WiFi and writeable surfacing on 70 percent of remaining walls enable staff to work and meet almost anywhere in the office.
