Davis Wright Tremaine, recognized as one of the most innovative law firms in the world, sought Gensler’s expertise in the site selection and design of its new headquarters in downtown Seattle. Our team explored the latest advances in legal workplace design and leveraged Gensler research to inform thoughtful, data-driven decisions. The firm was keen to bring a hospitality experience to the forefront of its workplace. The expansive reception area provides the company with a space to host large functions. Office sizes were standardized and corner offices were removed, making way for meeting spaces. Glass office fronts allow for natural light to penetrate the interior, delivering maximum transparency and access to views. An interconnecting staircase joins all floors, providing flow among the lawyers and staff.
