Washington REIT is a value-creation focused owner and operator of high-quality office, retail, and multifamily assets in the Washington Metro Area. The FOX team worked closely with Washington REIT to create a design for a traditional company wanting to move into an untraditional space. Our concept "REIT in Color" was about taking a classic and revitalizing it. Instead of creating a space that changed the way they worked, our team designed a space that helped to enable their work. The dynamic new footprint gave employees numerous work options, such as bar-height benching, cushions for impromptu workstation tag ups, and phone booths for privacy. Our team cultivated a means of wayfinding unique to REIT by creating work pavilions, for collaboration or quiet time, saturated in different colors that stand apart from the neutral floor plan. The reception features a large, movable closet allowing the pantry to open up to host larger events when needed.
