Burr & Forman
The concept for the renovation of the headquarters of Burr & Forman, a law firm operating throughout the Southeast, is the symbolism of the balancing scales of justice.
The circulation path within the space leads to four large quadrant windows and brings the unique diamond form of the existing building to life. This path continuously connects each of the spaces, allowing for visual and acoustic privacy and natural movement throughout the floor during large or small functions. Nods to the diamond and triangle as symbols of balance are found throughout the space in the ceiling of the elevator lobby, reception’s patterned wood paneling, bar details and the conference rooms’ custom cabinetry. The subtle gradient of the inner core’s wallcovering was used to provide additional acoustic buffering and represent the law’s ability to bring justice and light to dark and unresolved circumstances.
