Raleigh, N.C. – Parker Poe is among the most well respected regional law firms in the United States. Their new Raleigh office, however, is a departure from what one would expect from conventional law firm space. Parker Poe’s new office in PNC Plaza features a contemporary, high-tech look and offers some of the finest views of the city of Raleigh.
Edifice recently completed construction on the law firm’s new office, which includes a prominent use of glass to make the most of an open floor plan and amazing views. Glass is incorporated into the end of every east-west hallway to ensure that all areas receive the stunning window views and plenty of light.
The two-story, 50,000-square-foot office has more than 100 work spaces incorporating frosted glass panels at all office doors to bring in natural light throughout the floors. This new space has ten conference rooms clustered on one floor featuring the latest in audio and video technology and high-end finishes. The largest conference room features two Skyfold operable partitions that can be deployed from the ceiling to create two or three smaller conference rooms. The Skyfold doors function as a fully constructed wall in both appearance and acoustical dampening for confidential meetings with clients.
Instead of the conventional corner offices and standard break rooms, Parker Poe opted for a more collaborative environment including a café area complete with tables, booths, bar seating and sleek high-definition screens and team/collaboration rooms at each corner. In the main reception area, wood veneer panels and natural stone floors create the welcoming environment for their clients.
Parker Poe’s new office was designed by Gensler, an integrated architecture, design, planning and consulting firm. Edifice completed construction in only six months.
