Overview: PacificWRO partnered with Bora Architects & Interiors to transform a 41,000-square-foot industrial warehouse into an innovative and adaptable workspace.

- Custom Solutions: Tailored furnishings like Watson linoleum tops and mobile Davis conference tables align with the studio's industrial aesthetic.

- Sustainability and Innovation: Achieving LEED Platinum, the project integrates energy-efficient solutions, such as off-site photovoltaic paneling and daylighting strategies.

Outcomes: The new studio has been lauded for its creative and collaborative environment, enhancing productivity and employee satisfaction. It stands as a testament to PacificWRO’s expertise in crafting spaces that foster creativity and adaptability, reflecting the firm’s deep understanding of purpose-driven interior design.
