Ntrepid, a self-described “unconventional technology company,” turned to sshape for a full-floor build-out of it’s Herndon, Virginia headquarters. This was no standard office design project.
This nonprofit addresses social, agricultural, and environmental challenges worldwide. When their office moved to a new shell space in Arlington, Virginia, they wanted the build-out to reflect not just their Arkansas roots, but also the global footprint of their work.
sshape’s complete redesign of The ALS Association’s 12,066 square foot space in Arlington, Virginia, was not just about modernizing a workplace—it positions the non-profit’s mission front and center, both structurally and visually.
When it came time to move from a sublet into a permanent space, Vault Consulting placed its trust in sshape. To take Vault from a makeshift home to a space that reflects its own culture and identity, sshape engaged the accounting and research firm in a comprehensive space planning process and visioning session.
sshape worked with MidCap Financial to redefine their working style and create an efficient, modern space that delivers individual privacy while encouraging collaboration and social interaction.
Faced with a segmented space cluttered with outdated patterns and finishes, sshape is transforming the entryway and lobby of 1275 K Street, a premium commercial property in the heart of the District. The redesign started with eliminating existing partitions and alcoves to open and streamline the floorplan.
Located in Downtown Washington, DC, sshape was asked by the Landlord to update their 2000s era lobby and amenity spaces. The design incorporates a “high touch” hospitality feel to increase the luxury feel for this DC commercial office building.
Adapting its campus model to a new generation of working adults, Strayer University’s new storefront campuses provide a setting for student support, quiet study, and socializing.
sshape’s approach to 3000 K Street NW was an opportunity to reflect the building’s relationship to it’s connection along the water. Positioned at the edge of the Potomac River, sshape looked into the qualities and characteristics of the body of water and how they could be transformed into an experiential architectural expression.
The project is the perfect endorsement of the design team’s flexibility and gives NQF the space they need for their transformation to take root.
DAGA’s office space reflects two competing styles: one buttoned-up to suit the attorney generals and government dignitaries they’d host on a regular basis and the other untucked to keep the staff and any events they might throw energized, excited and comfortable.
At the flagship Washington Harbour mixed-use development on the District’s Potomac waterfront, sshape is helping owner MRP Realty transform a difficult space into a vibrant, desirable location for potential tenants.
