The goal was to renovate a non-descript 1950’s warehouse into offices that reflect the personality of the R.B. Akins Company, an HVAC equipment and service company. We chose to create a full building showroom where all the normally concealed mechanical equipment is revealed and celebrated. The HVAC equipment that is revealed includes ducts, grilles, copper pipe, louvers and more. Their products are proudly displayed, celebrated and treated like sculpture. The public spaces become unique and memorable for visitors.
