Echo worked with InterFaith Works to design a new home to bring their various programs together under one roof. The primary goal was to create an inclusive, welcoming place for the diverse communities that IFW serves, while also providing privacy and quiet spaces for the staff’s confidential work. The solution was to carve a large core of public and semi-public spaces out of the existing labyrinth of offices in the center of the building. Perimeter offices remained as a ring around this core, providing privacy and daylight for the staff’s primary work spaces. This work included property selection, spatial need conceptualization, and renovation of an out-dated office building.

In addition to our design work, we fabricated a welcome desk with two workstations, building signage and a donor recognition wall. The desk was constructed using doors and trim work salvaged during the interior office demolition.
