Bognet Construction and SmithGroupJJR collaborated to create a beautiful and efficient new space for the Economic Policy Institute. Upon entry of the lobby area one will see the wood veneer wallcovering and wood slat ceilings against the cool white, tile floors creating a sleek and sophisticated look. Within the space the wood veneers were used in areas such as the reception and pantry areas. Bright white stone countertops and flooring, furniture with pops of cranberry and stainless steel were paired with this beautiful dark veneer creating contrast and interest. The space also featured a highly functional breakout area with heavy IT and AV requirements as well as multiple small meeting rooms which are a reflection of this group works and functions.
