Jones Day

Los Angeles, California

To help Jones Day establish an environment fostering interaction and accessibility between employees, Gensler conducted focus groups to understand the functional, aesthetic and cultural requirements of the firm's six-floor space. The resulting design enhances client service, employee engagement and attorney collegiality. To promote interaction, Gensler placed the lunchroom along the perimeter of the office and introduced a conference center joined by an interconnecting stair. The center's dramatic views serve to welcome clients, and a club-like lounge provides for entertaining, informal meetings, and educational and civic firm-sponsored events.
