Situated in the heart of West Seattle, Compass Real Estate's new office is a stylish, efficient, and welcoming space cleverly nestled behind a historic storefront. Spanning 1,350 square feet, the area's potential is fully realized with three private offices, a conference room, a shared workroom, a restroom, and a space-saving kitchenette. The fresh and comfortable private offices are designed as repetitions of a basic module, derived from the client’s preferred workspace dimensions. At the front of the office, a sleek reception area opens up to an array of “hot desks" – compact workstations for agents needing a brief office stop without the necessity of a private, dedicated area. At the rear, a shared workroom offers a bright and uncluttered atmosphere that fosters collaboration.
Having recently transitioned from another real estate firm, the client wanted to carve out her own niche within Compass and the West Seattle community. The client's unique style was thoughtfully blended with Compass's distinct brand identity. Compass’s signature black and white color scheme was enriched with fresh and enticing textures, graphic accents, and dramatic lighting. A dazzling, cascading pendant light serves as the centerpiece to a glass and chrome conference room table, while a vibrant green wall adds a geometric pop of color and texture to the reception area. Expansive storefront windows bathe the reception area and conference room in natural light, with glass panels of varying opacities extending throughout the office to ensure even the farthest corners are well-lit.
