Not all firms want to capture the style and energy of a start-up. Some want to celebrate their success and proven excellence through the look and feel of a new work environment.

 The IA team’s elevated design solution uses luxurious materials, including calacatta gold marble, walnut, and satin brass, to project a refined elegance, ease, and confidence.  Retractable, store-front glass doors framed in brass open the boardroom to reception for large events.
