A reimagined workplace strategy

When Sherman & Howard set out to create a new downtown Denver office, our team was there to help with interior and lighting design. The result? A design that supports the company’s new hybrid officing model–a concept combining remote and in-office work–that has become a common alternative to traditional office use following the pandemic.

This project represents a unique opportunity to reimagine Sherman & Howard’s workplace strategy. Using input from team members, we created a hybrid model that emphasizes culture and collaboration while supporting the confidential nature of much of their work. By thinking critically about space usage, we were able to optimize the square footage, allowing for incorporation of all their desired elements in a significantly more efficient footprint than their previous space. In addition to both dedicated and free-address offices, the new space embraces hospitality-driven elements including a high-end work café, a training and multipurpose area, and other social and seating areas. The typical law library filled with heavy tomes has been replaced by a small lounge area lined with a curated selection of books.

The project was so successful that more staff than anticipated started coming into the office, and design of an expansion is now underway.
