Project Files: Womble Bond Dickinson, Tysons, VA
Underscoring a commitment to the community and nearly 20 years in Tysons Corner, VA, global law firm Womble Bond Dickinson has taken floor 15 of the new Boro office tower. Chosen with growth and evolution in mind, the new tower is part of the amenity-rich and sustainability-conscious 18-acre Boro complex that includes office, residential, retail, dining, and entertainment spaces within walking distance to public transit.
Totaling over 24,000 square feet, the new office embodies a forward-looking interpretation of traditional client/employee law-firm spaces. With maximized flex areas and a relaxed, engaging environment it is sure to attract top-tier talent and inspire pride of place for employees. The contemporary aesthetic uses glass, wood, and metals, warmed by residential features that diminish the line between corporate and hospitality design. A sense of comfort and ease prevails through the use of flexible furniture and living-room settings. Soft textile patterns and natural tones are accented with splashes of marigold.
Universal-sized attorney offices line the window walls; universal-sized support offices and conference rooms offer flexibility for converting room types as needed. Flex-space meeting rooms are positioned throughout.
Glass-encased conference rooms emphasize the firm’s desire to create an open, friendly space that speaks to transparency and togetherness.
To greet clients and employees, a light-filled open reception showcases the entry. An off-reception café shared by employees and clients makes a nontraditional statement intended to strengthen relationships and build community, while reducing redundancy. Combined, café and reception create a gathering space that accommodates large events and all hands meetings.
Planned for increased efficiency and aggressive growth, the new office pushes the boundaries of traditional law-firm design in response to current expectations and future objectives.
