This head office is located adjacent to a residential area of brick homes and high-rise office buildings. The material choices and architectural vocabulary make a transitional node between these extremes of use and scale. The main staircase uses a broad palette of metal components and applications to celebrate the livelihood of the ironworkers and rodmen and facility services.
