EOA Architects Office, 515 Main Street
The EOA office is an 8,686-sf architectural office located in a mixed-use development with high connectivity to its urban environment and neighborhood. Utilizing the open office plan along with interactive nodes throughout, the office serves to function as a creative and collaborative unit. The Kitchen, centrally located, helps to connect all programmatic areas, and promote a sense of community within the office. The overall linear wrapper scheme accented with lighting also reinforces the connection between spaces. The materials used throughout are a dark wood with pure white walls, allowing for a high contrast to emphasize the forms and void spaces. The ever-changing architectural projects on the boards and the people provide the “color” accents. The office is comprised of a Studio Space which contains 15 workstations, a reception area which emphasizes the overall scheme of the project, the kitchen, conference rooms, minimal private offices, and a “crit pit” (critique area) for creative collaboration.
