Brigandi & Associates, Chicago, IL

zpd+a designed an innovative yet cost-effective interior office renovation for Brigandi & Associates, a marketing and communications agency. In order to provide semiprivate offices with an abundance of natural light, zpd+a designed a series of lowheight drywall partitions capped by a continuous clerestory window to define the front and rear walls of each office. Additionally, a translucent wall panel system was used as sheathing over the metal studs, which filters natural light into the common work areas and highlights the loft aesthetic as part of the new renovations. Specialty wall finishes and tack boards encourage impromptu collaboration in the common work areas.

zpd+a's creative design solution used the open space above the display walls for supply and return air distribution, resulting in minimal alterations to the existing HVAC system. A completely new lighting system, consisting of pendant mounted direct / indirect fluorescent task lighting and incandescent track accent lighting created an efficient and visually appealing lighting design.
