When law firm Thompson Dorfman Sweatman LLP (TDS) moved to Winnipeg’s newest high-rise tower in the heart of the city, the firm had a chance to modernize their new office space. In designing the space, the company focused on introducing leading edge technology, reducing their spatial footprint, and incorporating more collaborative spaces.
Entering the Digital Age
As a law firm, TDS was all too familiar with traditional paper storage methods. However, the new design creates a “paper-reduced office” by digitizing documents and providing centralized communal storage. Architecture firm Number Ten, with interior design firm Figure3, enlisted Knoll dealer First Avenue to organize a space that supports the day-to-day data and storage needs. At workstations white Anchor Lockers and Series 2 Pedestals blend seamlessly into the minimal aesthetic, while in private offices Reff Profiles Overheads and Credenzas with seat cushions create a welcoming environment. A minimalist aesthetic—contrasting dark wall and door trim and white laminate Tone Height-Adjustable Tables—reinforces a less storage-intensive environment.
