Real Estate Office
Newton, Massachusetts



The complete renovation of this storefront space into offices for a division of the Gallery of Homes Realty focuses on a central area designed to display the owner's collection of craftsman style furniture. This area, articulated as a “living room,” is defined by four corner columns, a lighting valance "beam", and a raised ceiling area.  This important client meeting space is given further spatial definition through the use of the contrasting wood trim and paint scheme, which is intended to create a setting sympathetic to the style of the furniture. 


The “living room” is separated from the brokers' work area by a screen wall which acts as the visual terminus of the office's public area while permitting open access to the nine built-in work stations located behind it.  A private office, closing room, and other functional areas are reached through doorways arranged along the side walls of the “living room”, emphasizing its importance and reinforcing the symmetry of the plan.
