MLK offices


This premise was to convert and old existing warehouse in the Longfellow district of Oakland into a new small creative offices that would blend into a new and dynamic community.  The shell of the warehouse remained primarily in tact, and the interior was reconfigured and subdivided to contain small offices.  The exterior was skinned with a wood screen to both provide privacy for workers and a dynamic exterior that would respond to the neighborhood.  This wood screen was carried through to the interior circulation spaces to provide a connection between interior and exterior and to serve as a guide to visitors.
