Progressive Media: Seattle

Three floors of tenant space needed to be built out on a tight budget in a new building. For the most impact, a targeted approach was used, where we put most of the design emphasis on gathering spaces, such as the reception are, conference room, lunch room, employee mail room, etc.

In the public corridors, we emphasized the ends and intersections, leaving the lengths untouched.

Musician's Association of Seattle

Recently completed, these offices seek to rejuvenate the image of the Musician's Assocation by creating an open and inviting office on the street with a lounge for members and offices that look into the open light-filled reception area.


The office fronts have a Mondrianesque feeling in order to inject a jazz sensibility into an otherwise staid office environment.

Musicware/Incoming Inc.: Redmond

An office space shared by two different companies under the same ownership, the offices were designed to evoke the image of a music studio with administrative offices. Musicware's side of the office featured larger panels of acoustic foam, custom designed modular walls, and faux sliding panels, as if the space could be easily transformed for performances. Incoming Inc's tele-center shared the imagery, but in a more rigorous and repetitive desk/cubical layout.

Jay Rockey Public Relations: Seattle

Built as an extension of the existing offices, in the company's former parking structure, this is an open courtyard plan. The goal was to insert enough structure to transform the space, but with large openings and open ceilings, so that it didn't lose the benefits from the large open space with skylights above.


For acoustic privacy, "clouds" of ceiling panels were hung over each open-topped office, with uplighting reflecting off of them.

Hauch Medical Clinic: San Dimas, CA

Originally hired to help the designers manouver through a difficult Historical Review process in the City of San Dimas, California, we were ultimately hired to complete the design of the building and execute working drawings once the approvals had been obtained.

The approval process did indeed prove difficult, as some fifty or so schemes were submitted, mostly in sketch form, until we hit on one that the city Historic Preservation Officer liked.

WORKSHOP 3D Offices: Seattle

Ray Freeman's own 'Brazil'-inspired storefront offices in Seattle's Belltown neighborhood. In addition to the interior office space, back work room, and gallery, the storefront was extended and extensively reworked after the existing storefront glass failed in a strong windstorm.


In addition to the steel frames visible in the photo, unusual features of the design included a hyrofoil door (now in Freeman's house) and a street-artist painted storefront mural that was re-used as louvers when glass was put in the same opening.
