Fried Frank

Washington, D.C.

Biting the bullet, this international law firm finally relocated, selecting for its new home a LEED® Platinum building with floor-to-ceiling glass windows just two blocks from the White House. Capitalizing on the views, Gensler focused on transparency and visibility to counter the dark, closed-off feeling of the old office. Efficiency- and flexibility- driven, the new office reduces square-footage per staffer, and a suite of conference rooms can easily convert into smaller offices as the firm’s needs change with the legal landscape. The new workplace communicates the firm’s exuberant avant-garde spirit and intellectual commitment to pushing boundaries, while enhancing trust among attorneys and with their clients.
