Maryland Coastal Bays Program Office Renovation, Berlin, MD, 2014

Problem:  Create a sense of unity and collaboration within a rectangular office space.  Employees need privacy, but also the opportunity to contribute to their team mates projects freely.  Additionally, the office environment should focus out to the beautiful natural setting of the building.

Solution:  Each employee gets an office pod, with a private inner chamber and public outer layer.  Pods are arranged in “neighborhoods”, leaving public open space between them like parkland.  The pods are arranged on the interior of the space, leaving the exterior walls unblocked for maximum views out.
