Working with Richard Keating Architecture, MASHstudios designed a sophisticated workplace environment in white thermoformed Corian to reflect Jacobs’ reputation as a high-tech engineering firm. The project was big in scope and especially challenging because of the white-on-white palette and seamless construction. There are no expansion joints or screws, no material splits. Each component is a solid piece of Corian that’s been formed, chiseled out, and finished to a high gloss.
The reception desk is a perfect, floating form designed to function as furniture. In the boardroom an enormous meeting table in ColorCore is accented with polished stainless steel power/data ports. The benches are exceptional. Their curving forms are intimately connected to the architecture and appear to levitate along the wall of the entrance corridor.
