Dallas, Texas (PRWEB) March 12, 2013
BOKA Powell, a Dallas-based architecture and design firm, has concluded interior design work on Stream Realty’s new 35,000-square-foot headquarters space in downtown Dallas. BOKA Powell provided complete interior design services for the modern office, which covers parts of two floors in the Trammell Crow Center.
“Our design is inspired by Stream’s youthful, high energy and its corporate leaders’ passion for the outdoors,” said Andrew Bennett, principal of BOKA Powell. “We carefully selected a color palette with natural tones reflecting trees, water and sky, using contemporary materials to give the space a modern feeling.”
The floor plan has four distinct quadrants, including a large lobby and cluster of conference rooms, as well as low and open modular workstations that embody Stream’s horizontal culture. Unlike traditional office arrangements in which executive offices are positioned along walls, BOKA Powell designed an open floor plan, placing cubicles adjacent to the floor-to-ceiling windows to give employees maximum light and views of the Dallas skyline.
“Our new space is modern and innovative, and the open-office environment fosters a culture of collaboration, mentorship and teamwork,” explains Chris Jackson, regional managing partner for Stream Realty. “We wanted to infuse the space with a feeling of comfort that makes for a great place to work and a great place to take our business to the next level.”
An ideal venue for corporate events and meetings, the flexible lobby area includes adjacent conference rooms that can accommodate large gatherings.
“The unique building floor plate allowed us to create a generous lobby and designate large public spaces for entertainment purposes,” said Caroline Edsell, interior designer, BOKA Powell. “We designed the company’s break room to feel more like a communal kitchen, with lounge space for employees to relax and decompress.”
Stream Realty occupies the 28th floor and portions of the 26th floor in the Trammell Crow Center, located at 2001 Ross Avenue in the Arts District of downtown Dallas, Texas. The Class AA space currently seats over 150 employees.
