Drywall is up at the new Optic One location and the final forms are beginning to take shape. The concept for this space was to create a clean, modern and high end feel. The client wanted to create an eye care center that was unlike any other in Spokane. Creating a 3D model was critical in order communicate design direction for this space and was also a helpful tool to easily communicate our design intent with the contractor.
Another tenant space at The Wonder Building is coming along nicely! As the future home for Rover, a Pet Sitter and Dog walking company, the finishes and layout are well suited for a dog-friendly work place. Their view of the river from the 3rd Floor "Woof Deck" is amazing!
Founded in 2011, Rover is the nation’s largest network of five-star pet sitters and dog walkers. In the past seven years, Rover has grown to serve more than 10,000 cities with more than 140,000 sitters, and now has a Spokane office with hopes of growing to more than 100 employees, both in-office and remotely.
The progress of the new space for Fatbeam is coming along!

We are excited to share with you this amazing transformation of a building in Spokane built in the 1920s. The owner of this new retail and merchandise shop completely gutted, structurally reinforced, and refinished the interior of the building bringing it back to life. This 15,000 square foot building has completed the first phase of construction and two business occupy approximately 6,000 square feet in the North end of the space. The next phases will include a fresh new exterior, an event space, and corporate offices.
The space includes large format steel panels designed and fabricated by Revamp that provide a high level of security while adding an element of design both inside and outside of the building. The retail space was designed to create an inviting experience through effective layouts, strong branding, product displays, and visual merchandising. The space includes custom fixtures, furniture, signage, and millwork fabricated by Peregrine.
Keep an eye out for the improvements in the next phases!

We recently went down to Walla Walla to do a final walk through of the Christian Aid Center. This facility provides restoration and love to men, woman, and their families in need. They support an environment of dignity and hope while providing the structure that helps break the cycle of addictions and domestic abuse.
Through design, we were able to create a warm, cozy, residential like feeling with commercial grade materials, finishes, and furniture that will stand the test of time. We hope this new facility provides a place to be safe, to experience dignity, to live in a caring community, and to find restoration.

Recently, we had the privilege to assist Stifel, a full-service brokerage and investment banking firm, with their new Spokane office. Our goal was to create a modern and sophisticated look while having a timeless feel. All lighting was upgraded to direct/indirect LED and the selected finishes retained a high light reflectance while being durable and easy to keep clean.
Working closely with Stifel, we helped them finalize their floor plan, select the most appropriate interior finishes and furniture systems, and design their custom signage. This office truly reflects the impressiveness of this Investment Services firm, which has been in business since 1890.
Our scope included preparing the permit construction drawings set, assisting with final finish selections, reviewing and specifying furniture selections, designing and coordinating install of custom signage, coordinating technology integration, and designing custom cabinetry.

After being asked to join this project by Wolfe Architecture group, we jumped right in to investigate what we have to work with. We were thrilled to explore the old Wonder Bread building just North of the Spokane River and we have found artifacts throughout to re-purpose in the new design of the space. Some of our favorites are the old wood ceiling, over scaled metal warehouse sliding doors, large conveyor belt and scale, and the painted sink wall (Thank you ZNation!) We cannot wait to transform this space into a unique mixed use/ multi tenant building for the Spokane community! #AdaptiveReuse #CoolestOfficeSpaceInSpokane #GettingInspired #Spokane #zNation
