In need an office refresh, Austin A. McNichols Insurance sought out Newman Architecture to modernize their existing workplace environment and create a welcoming entry area for visitors and staff.

The extra-large Conference Room was reduced to a more appropriate size to accommodate a new private office, which can later be repurposed as their needs change. New cabinetry and furniture throughout provide ample concealed storage and promotes a clean, organized atmosphere.

Simple, neutral colors with high contrast and pops of blue enhance the natural light in the space and accentuate the artwork displayed, creating an art-gallery effect as you move through the common areas. New wood-framed glass office doors provide the privacy needed while allowing the light to flow through to the hallway. The openness also contributes to a greater sense of connectedness among the staff, who are primarily situated in private offices.
