This two-story tenant improvement in Tacoma’s only Class-A office building is special for several reasons. First, the space celebrates staff. Instead of boardrooms and private offices, there are open workstations that focus on collaboration and efficiency, and a large, elevated lounge space for gathering that still provides quiet respite areas to recharge. Views of the working port are opened up so everyone can enjoy them officewide.
Second, as the global company’s regional headquarters, experiential graphics capture the company’s exciting maritime history throughout. A dramatic reception lobby welcomes visitors into a two-story space. The wood-and-metal staircase had to be reimagined during the renovation and now lends a sophisticated, connected feel to the lobby. Those who travel between other TOTE Maritime offices will recognize the design language from other locations that still highlights the uniqueness of this location with stunning views to the Port of Tacoma.
