Sotheby’s is a realty firm that specializes in high end residential properties. The nature of their business requires a very dense layout of enclosed private offices for individual realtors and their clients. The challenge was to create an environment of confidentiality that did segregated the private offices from the remaining areas of the space. Focusing on interconnecting views, the design team lined the perimeter with private offices but included large areas of glazing – this allowed the natural light to be brought from the exterior and filter into the inner spaces. Additionally, to reinforce the real estate they target, the finishes selected took on a blend of residential comfort and commercial style.
