Built on innovation and reliablitiy for over 60 years, Forward Industries develops and produces leading-edge commodities for some of the world’s top companies and brands. We were engaged to transform their Santa Monica top floor office suite into a streamlined and collaborative open office space that optimizes staff interaction.
To identify the client’s wish list, define the project priorities, and communicate the reality of meeting expectations.
First, we defined each phase and the associated timeline in detail. We then sourced design specifications and produced quick-sketch documents to illustrate the solutions and obtain approvals. Through collaboration with the contractor, construction started before the schedule, and jobsite meetings were held frequently to mitigate misinterpretations and schedule delays.
We delivered the project on time and within budget. The high open ceiling is accentuated with wood beams and skylights that flood the office space with natural light. Installed throughout, contemporary translucent glass panels are used as collaborative writing surfaces. And, the simple, neutral color palette adds warmth and comfort for the creative staff.
