Case Study: Bombardier at 1275 Pennsylvania

KGD Architecture completed two speculative office suites for the Willco Companies on the second and sixth floor of 1275 Pennsylvania Avenue. The neutral pallets appeal to a wide variety of tastes, offering a clean space for any prospective company. The translucent glass creates an open atmosphere for the compact space, highlighting the kitchen as the focal point. The high end stone and wood offer the speculative office texture and dimension. The modern sliding glass door technology contributes to the sleek, professional environment while providing a barrier for noise.

KGD Architecture has worked increasingly with developers and leasing agents to create appealing, efficient spaces to be offered as speculative suites.  Suites usually range from 1,500 to 5,000 SF but can be as large as 10,000 SF and are designed with flexibility in mind.  For landlords, ‘Spec Suites’ can shorten the time valuable real estate is vacant by streamlining build-out.  They offer potential tenants nearly move-in ready spaces, often built out with one or more conference spaces, reception, a galley and a mix of open and private office.  The tenant and landlord work with our team to select finishes and fixtures, which can be in place in a matter of weeks not months.

KGD’s Interiors team designs spaces that lease reliably and quickly, and are designed for a flexible tenant fit-out.  See examples below both for speculative suites in their leasable and occupied condition.

Initially created as a spec suite for the Willco Companies, Bombardier leased the new space and retained KGD Architecture to customize the space to reflect their corporate culture and iconography of transportation and innovation.

The bright, contemporary space is approximately 2,400 SF. Due to the compact size of the suite, an open floor plan and floor-to-ceiling glass partitions were used to extend sightlines and increase a sense of spatial connectivity throughout. Standard Bombardier brand colors were used at feature walls and illuminated architectural slots were employed as display areas for signage and the model trains and planes the company typically displays in its offices.
