Hickok Cole Architects Redesigns Allsteel Resource Center in Washington, D.C.

04 October, 2013

-By Holly O'Dell


The Allsteel Resource Center in Washington, D.C., has completed a renovation of its 10,800-square-foot space, overseen by local firm Hickok Cole Architects. The flexible floorplan references the history of the office furniture manufacturer, from the perforated steel feature wall inspired by Allsteel’s origins as the inventor of the lateral file to the steel boxes filled with paper to display seating options.


The atrium separates the showroom into two distinct areas, allowing multiple functions. To the right, an educational area is used for meetings and events; to the left, visitors can gather in a casual furniture grouping. On the opposite side of the steel feature wall, a back-lit photograph of the Washington Monument is visible only when leaving the resource center.
