GliddenSpina + Partners has developed a new office space for their firm from the refurbished Hopkins Marine building in West Palm Beach, Florida.
The stylish renovation of the old Hopkins Marine, a neglected 1950’s mid-century design building, reflects the growth and promising trajectory of its new owner, occupants and restoration project design team, GliddenSpina + Partners. As a result, it is not at all unexpected that a creative-focused architecture and design firm transformed this building and delivered a really cool workspace. As you approach the building, it is obvious how the project brilliantly features the juxtaposition of the historic and the contemporary. Here, GliddenSpina + Partners has provided a physical and social structure that fosters openness, collaboration, inspiration and community.
Inside, daylight streams through new skylights emphasizing the towering, two story space and highlights a multitude of unique design features. These include an open staircase, custom designed floating wood walls, dramatic light fixtures and frameless frostless glass offices which let you know the firm principals are working just as hard as everybody else. The modern work environment features comfortable, informal gathering points and meeting areas which encourage people to engage, along with integrated technology available throughout to help everyone connect.
The GliddenSpina work ethic, work-hard, play-hard, is reflected throughout and the additional perks provided by the firm are pretty epic too. Not only do they provide free lunch every day in their sleek, modern kitchen, they have a billiard room, a full shower, six shiny new GliddenSpina beach cruises and a customized electric golf cart. Every wall a blank canvas for showcasing incredible multimedia artwork, the space feels like a gallery and is perfect not only for executing day-to-day operations but generating a real sense of community and sincere regard for the incredible talent that elevates GliddenSpina above the rest.
