A national firm touting a client base of high-tech titans, Cooley has a progressive nature down to its DNA. They approached Alliance with a desire to incorporate key elements of their Silicon Valley roots into a new Boston office in a way that still fit the quirks of the local community. Alliance worked with them to fashion an overarching theme of ‘modern sophistication meets a highly energetic and fun work style’. To convey these traits architecturally, Alliance married spatial openness with meticulous detailing like folded steel and stone platforms. The materials and color palette selected for the space–including many sustainable elements–reinforce the firm’s unconventional ethos.
