Offices – Harris Personal Injury Lawyers @ Historic El Cortez

The law firm of Harris Personal Injury Lawyers, Inc. decided to add their 7th office location at the Historic El Cortez Condominiums. The design team, Esteban Interiors, was inspired by the spaces soaring twenty foot ceilings and plateresque architectural details. The goal was to create an open executive office that would complement the building’s history and architecture while adding a modern flavor and an approachable residential feeling. The challenge was to create a human scale in a large space, while also evenly lighting it and mitigating high sound levels. The sound and lighting levels were balanced by using wool felt grids from Buzzi Space and adding LED light channels to them resulting in light fixtures that appear to float.
