AEB,Advanced Electron Beams
LS&A provided architecture andinterior design services for the renovation of a suburban office and warehousespace for a company that designed and manufactured equipment that utilizedelectron beams for sanitation, quick drying and other esotericapplications. Our design concept wasinspired by the electron beam itself that had a cobalt blue appearance whenworking. We utilized the cobalt bluecolor as well as the linear nature of the beam, for furniture, lighting andother finishes, as well as for way-finding, delineating the “tour” forinvestors and customers. One of the counter-intuitive space planningsuggestions made by the design team was to locate the cafeteria/multi-purposemeeting room on the front windows, so that employees who worked in thewindowless manufacturing, warehouse or clean room areas could have access tolight and a relaxed environment. Sincethe company was just past the start up phase, inexpensive materials and usedfurniture were specified. Our scope of services included: Programming, SpacePlanning, Design Development, including the design of custom built-ins, FurnitureSelection and Specifications, Construction Documents, selected vendor Bidding,Construction and Installation observation/administration, and Punch List.
