Project DescriptionArchitecture and design firm ADD Inc, now with Stantec, continues to grow their workplace practice with the design of the new Brickell Link executive office center and co-working facility located at the 600 Brickell Avenue building in Miami, Florida.
Encompassing the entire 16th floor of the building, the 24,000 square foot space is surrounded by floor-to-ceiling windows. All offices have glass walls to take advantage of Miami’s city and bay views and to create a sense of transparency. Different professional spaces were implemented such as executive suites, conference rooms, collaborative workstations and lounges to accommodate startups, entrepreneurs or the individual office of a national or multinational company.
“Brickell Link wanted a stylish space to attract executives looking for a sophisticated yet convenient office environment where they can have a private office or an open workstation if they want to collaborate with other professionals,” said designer Eric Holland, Principal of ADD Inc and head of the firm’s workplace practice in Miami. “We created a comfortable, yet ultra modern look with all the high tech and office amenities that today’s professionals would need.”
The design takes into account the corporate brand of 600 Brickell by utilizing walnut woods throughout the space. The dark tones are freshened up with tropical color accents of greens, blues and oranges on walls, glass doors, carpets and furniture, giving the space a young and vibrant feel. Concrete floors and exposed 12-inch ceilings complement the contemporary look.
From the minute clients walk into Brickell Link, they get a sense of the design-driven space. In keeping up with the building’s corporate brand, the reception area features walnut wood strips that travel up the wall and curve across the ceiling and over the reception desk. Two playful circular benches with green cushions were built into the wall. The five silver pendant light fixtures by famed furniture designer Tom Dixon create a dramatic entrance to the space.
Brickell Link was designed to support green efforts.
The 600 Brickell building is a class-A office tower and one of only 14 in the world to be officially certified as LEED Platinum, the highest certification available from the U.S. Green Building Council. The rating signifies a superior indoor environment of air quality, light harvesting, and energy savings.
