OTJ Architects designed Global Industries' new furniture showroom, which includes a sleek reception area.

Dupont Circle Design

Dupont Circle Design After a move from the third to the tenth floor of its Dupont Circle-area building, international contract furniture company Global Industries tapped the firm OTJ Architects to design its new showroom. The mandate was to showcase the company’s commitment to sustainable design in a fresh, modern space. The result is a light-filled showroom enhanced by city views that ably meets LEED Silver requirements.

The space includes a sleek reception area, with a recycled concrete counter paired with a backlit tinted-glass base. Modular FLOR carpets and Trend Q engineered stone tile clad the floors. The extensive showroom offers multiple product-display vignettes.

OTJ used light finishes and reflective ceiling materials for a modern aesthetic, constructing a minimal number of walls so as not to obstruct natural light. Lighting specialist Candace Kling’s plan ensured that products would be effectively highlighted in the showroom while lights still met LEED standards.

DESIGN ARCHITECTURE: ROGER SOLA-SOLE, studio director; TRAVIS HERRET, project designer; KEVIN SNEED, AIA, LEED AP; LIDA LEWIS, Associate AIA, LEED AP, OTJ Architects, Washington, DC. CONTRACTOR: HBW Group, Rockville, Maryland.
