ARUP Recept Desk & Partitions

As part of the 10,000 sf Arup expansion plan for their NJ office, we designed a range of meeting and reception areas to that would be used for office meetings, presentations, and encourage informal discussions and exchange of ideas. At the entry, a new reception desk and screen welcome visitors and filter light to the reception seating area and a large open conference room. The conference room’s sliding partitions allows the conference room and reception area to be combined for large gatherings and presentations.

Informal seating adjacent to the reception area provides a flexible meeting and eating area for staff. One can see between these two areas through a range of apertures that engage the spaces visually while allowing the seating to be clearly defined. The flow between the open office zones and the collaborative meeting areas encourages interaction and communication between office colleagues.
