The law firm WilmerHale occupies 280,000 square feet of space within 1875 Pennsylvania Avenue, a Clark-built 13-story office building in downtown Washington, D.C. Clark Interiors completed the third phase of the build out.
The law firm’s space is highlighted by custom features, rich materials, and award-winning class A finishes throughout.
WilmerHale's custom reception desk features integrated lighting beneath a translucent resin top. Italian Calcutta Gold marble and Uba Tuba black granite are showcased throughout the space, including in the elevator lobbies and as accent pavers to complement the glass walls at the perimeter office fronts. All perimeter front offices have custom-veneered millwork doors with integrated glass wall panels. In total, the project team installed over 135,000 square feet of acoustical ceiling work and 154,000 square feet of drywall ceilings (including bulkheads) throughout the building.
The front of a select number of conference rooms features a two-story interior aluminum glass curtain wall system, and specialty Depp art-glass bounds the perimeter of the elevator lobbies and pantries. The 12th floor double-height boardroom includes custom millwork panels on the walls and a suspended Decoustics wood panel ceiling. At its center is a complimentary custom millwork table measuring 33 feet in length, the form of which was designed with a subtle tapering to optimize sightlines from every seat at the table.
The project followed an aggressive 10-month schedule. The team worked round-the-clock shifts, increasing manpower to deliver on schedule.
