This is a shot of the open office from the Stantec Architects offices that I showed yesterday. An intriguing feature of the space is that they installed a floating floor 18" above the original floor and have run all the heating and cooling ducts, voice lines, and data systems under the floor in order to leave the original Douglas Fir ceiling unencumbered by ductwork etc. You can see the space under the floor visible in the centre of the pic - they have installed glass panels on its edges so as to be able to see under. The office also has a bicycle garage and shower facilities for the workforce. It is a very 'green' space!
