IBC Building Office Space


The concept developed to address this space is inspired by a lighthouse. The lighthouse is a metaphor for the client, The National Domestic Violence Hotline, and the role that they serve as a guiding light to the individuals that they assist. The space was separated into two segments: the structured, supportive business spaces that lays the foundation for the hotline service, and the dynamic active spaces where the resources are converted into the product or services accessed by callers.


Special client requests & design considerations are highlighted on the floorplan.
