Small office remodel in downtown Oakland

This downtown Oakland office remodel we've been working on is just about done. It is so fun to see a space become transformed as we put in new the new finishes and furnishings. This is a small project with little to no actual construction, but still..... what a change! We (and the client!) are very please with the final design. 

 New paint, new lights and soon to come, new flooring, doors and windows.

 Here is the space before the remodel began. We're still under construction and it's already an improvement!

 We've removed all the doors and windows to put in more modern and insulative ones with aluminum framing.

 Since we wanted to change the lights out anyway, it was a good opportunity to do something fun and interesting. The space is small, and we wanted to keep the design clean and open feeling. This nice design on the ceiling is functional and adds a bit of interest when you first enter the space.

 The interior offices are all getting a much needed face lift as well. A bit of paint goes a long way. Soon all the furniture and the rest of the finishes and fixtures will be in to completely transform this place.

 The living walls we designed, with Planted Design are going up on the walls. These will bring in some much needed lush elements into the office, and will be striking to look at without taking up much space.

 Currently, back at the BWC shop we are working away to fabricate all of the custom furniture. Here the conference table is being glued up and Joel is busy making a matching cabinet.
