3 Advertising Corporate OfficeThis project is an excellent example of how Baker A+D can work within tight budget and schedule constraints. When 3 Advertising came to us with the seemingly impossible task of designing their new 8,000 square foot corporate office all within, let's just say, a very very small budget, we took the opportunity as a chance to think outside the box. As a client with a creative sensibility, 3 Advertising had some general ideas about how they wanted their space to be: semi-open offices, portability (due to the fact that they wanted to be able to take as much of their office as possible if they ever decide to move) and to express their corporate culture. We developed a concept that captured the energy of 3 and provided a fun and creative work environment while still providing the essential functions that a corporate office needs. We provided each office a unique feeling of both privacy and openness. To achieve this we used removable translucent panels in a series of three different configurations in order to give a hierarchy and rhythm to the overall space. Common open spaces like the Print Shop and Production Area were provided a sense of importance with the use of wood screen walls or ceilings. This allows light to filter through while still maintaining a visual presence. We accelerated the construction schedule because a great deal of the project was fabricated off site then simply brought to the site and installed.
