Barton Oaks II & III

GSC Architects February 8, 2016

Barton Oaks Plaza II & III is a 250,000 SF campus renovation of two existing five-story office buildings. The main goal of this project was to update the existing lobbies, restrooms, tenant corridors and building standards with an emphasis on energy efficiency and environmentally friendly materials. Both lobbies make a statement with a large expanse of dark red granite and mahogany accent walls, in which we are preserving to keep with the vernacular of the building. Updating the existing lighting to more efficient, higher output LED lighting allowed us to highlight these finishes and brighten the overall space. By preserving these two elements we are able to streamline and modernize both lobbies, while being minimally invasive. Building II is unique in that it houses a five-story interior atrium with exposed elevator chases in which we created a glass enclosure and a fritted pattern. With the addition of large scale sculptural pendant lighting, a new focal point was created for the space.
