Crowley Maritime Corporate Headquarters

RS&H renovated the existing 110,000-sqaure-foot corporate headquarters building. In the process, we changed the interior layout from a traditional floorplan, with individual enclosed offices, to a completely open, collaborative environment. We also modified the lighting fixtures throughout to achieve energy savings and improve performance.

In the open areas, efficient low-glare fluorescent fixtures combine with perimeter daylighting to create a comfortable mix of natural and artificial light sources. We added track lighting in as well to attract attention toward the company’s beautiful, black-and-white, framed historic photographs, which are affixed upon walls throughout the public spaces of the building.

A nautical theme permeates throughout the design, from the seating in the lobby to the ceiling in the main conference room, which features an abstract expression of a ship’s hull. Fully concealed and dimmable cove lighting accentuates this theme while providing glare-free light for the space. The contemporary design carries into the café and fitness center with lighting conducive to both function and appearance.
