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.
Bringing to life the unique diamond form of the existing building, the circulation path leads to each of the four large quadrant windows. 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. This design finds harmony in balance through the use of symmetrical shapes. Nods to the diamond and triangle as symbols of balance are found throughout the space from the ceiling of the elevator lobby, to 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.
