After building a decades-long relationship with Pizzano, the founders of Promontory Financial knew where to turn to bring their vision of the company’s landmark space to fruition. The initial 20,000 square feet had to be occupied within 12 weeks of project award. The remaining 50,000 square feet, meanwhile, were completed around the occupied space.
The design included sapele wood flooring, electrified switch glass offices, specialty veneer panels and Skyfold conference room partitions. In a project full of intricate details, perhaps the most challenging was the stainless steel staircase installed within the occupied space. The completed staircase won the Washington Builders Congress Craftmanship Award.
“As an architect you design for the present, with an awareness of the past, for a future which is essentially unknown.”
