Needing to expand their modest office space, the law firm of Chun Kerr LLP made the bold decision to move to the 23rd floor of the prestigious First Hawaiian Bank Tower. While the move was interpreted as a jump to play with the “big boys,” the easy-going firm didn’t want to lose their fun-loving, laid back identity. Working closely with the client and architect, we created a highly efficient office layout with the sensibilities that reminded everyone of the firm’s relaxed character.
Chun Kerr desired an office aesthetic that would make both clients and staff feel at ease. The arrival experience is warm and welcoming – a stark contrast to the corporate lobbies of many law offices. Quirky light fixtures and furnishings, herringbone-patterned wall coverings, art and color all contribute to the casual atmosphere. The office was designed to relate to the firm’s local roots with mango, orange and banana yellow pops of color and a curated selection of art reflecting Hawaii.
