In Arlington, Virginia, sshape executed a full build-out of a 25,500 RSF space in Arlington, VA to co-house three organizations with a shared commitment to supporting the agricultural economy.
The highly competitive grocery industry has changed dramatically over the past decade, and thanks to a comprehensive redesign from sshape, the National Grocer’s Association (NGA) is keeping pace.
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.
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Faced with a segmented space cluttered with outdated patterns and finishes, sshape is transforming the entryway and lobby of 1275 K Street, a premium commercial property in the heart of the District.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.
