Ellin & Tucker
NFD has served as interior designer for Ellin & Tucker’s office renovation/relocation projects over the past 25 years, including their newest 31,776 square foot planned space. NFD was tasked with incorporating features to improve the work environment for the employees’ advantage. Access to daylight was critical, so minimal offices were placed on the window line allowing everyone to benefit. Glazing was placed in the walls of the offices that were on the glass line to further enhance daylight availability and to take advantage of the beautiful harbor views. Layout of the space was planned to encourage a team environment and collaboration, while several informal, break-out areas were incorporated allowing for down-time and creativity. Other areas integrated into the design were study zones, a nursing room for moms, and a “Starbucks-like” coffee area. The entertainment area, highlighting a bar space with high top tables, opens into the fun zone featuring a pool table, large screen TV, video games, kitchen, putting green, and an outside patio. A video room for recording videos to educate clients and highlight the firm, doubles as an area for collaboration and video conferencing. A monumental stair creates architectural interest while connecting the two floors of the suite and encourages exercise. Sustainability, an important piece of the design concept, was incorporated by selecting low VOC paint, recycled carpet content, energy star equipment and LED light fixtures to ensure the suite be environmentally conscious. Bright, sophisticated and enriching – the new space promotes mental and physical health while stimulating the senses and truly creating a space that affirms employees, and clients, are valued.
