Wheeler Trigg O’Donnell LLP sought a timeless design that would capitalize on mountain views; help attract and retain employees; and foster an energetic “buzz” among its staff. RNL carved out panoramic views, and in tandem with the art consultants, created a gallery inspired reception that welcomes guests and showcases the firm’s diverse art collection.

A glass-enclosed sculptural staircase connects three full stories and promotes the firm’s visible energy. This transparency is carried through to the office areas. Etched glass office fronts offer attorneys privacy while providing all employees with access to natural light.

The full-service conference center includes a mock courtroom, the centerpiece of the firm’s practice. Folding glass doors allow the space to be expanded and contracted, while flexible furnishings support a variety of functions.
