Herschman Architects
Beachwood, Ohio

It is not often the opportunity to collaborate on high profile design oriented office presents itself. That is exactly what the Herschman Architects new headquarter offices are. As one of the leading architectural firms in the retail architecture market their sense of style and design is unquestioned. This is also reflected in the design of their offices and the lighting design created by Tec Inc.

The abundance of exterior glass and interior borrowed light provides a sense of transparency within the office. The spaces are well illuminated without being over bright. Light gently filters from one area to an adjoining space. The main open office areas at the perimeter rely on day lighting, with just enough artificial illumination to offset contrast issues with computer monitors and work surfaces with overcast skies or evening work.

The result is a visually comfortable contemporary environment certainly compatible with the architecture being practiced on a daily basis.
