Large Financial Institution a 2015 Design Is…Award Market Winner

Shaw Contract Group conducted interviews with all firms representing Market-Award winning projects from the 2015 Design Is…Award program. As part of this process, we share a portion of the response on our blog for readers to learn more about the winning projects.  These are their stories.

Kelly Capp spoke with us about this energetic design journey.

Describe this project in one word. Energetic.


How does this project demonstrate how design can impact users in a space?The project reflects the client’s brand and increases productivity and performance through spatial relationships and collaborative spaces, and also provides amenities and an aesthetically outstanding environment to help with employee retention and recruiting.

Design is a process. Explain your journey. We spend a large amount of time with the client during the programming phase to really get to know them well and ensure that their national standards would function well for the Los Angeles practice and therefore we were able to adjust some of these standards to better serve the LA Office.


What are the most important lessons you’ve learned through this project that you’d want to share with the designers of tomorrow?  Trust your initial feeling and collaborate with others to make your vision reality and see it built like you envisioned.
