250,000 Square Feet
Year Completed: 

The 250,000 square-foot space for Finnegan, Henderson, Farabow, Garrett & Dunner, LLP houses seven floors of offices for their attorneys, along with a cafeteria and catering operation. Highlighting the office space is a six-story monumental stair, which is enhanced by custom lighting fixtures.

Finnegan, Henderson, Farabow, Garrett & Dunner, LLP's main reception area, multiple conference room facilities, caucus rooms, and video deposition room are located on the 11th floor. Offices stretch from the fifth to the 11th floor. A mailroom, an in-house computer repair center and state-of-the-art data center are located on the concourse level. With many upgraded finishes, the design includes detailed featured wall systems, hardwoods and specialty metals as well as glass. Custom veneered doors in aluminum frames, and integrated sidelights with matching stain grade accents adorn each floor. Secretarial stations are crafted from custom-made millwork, and include integral lighting, lacquer cabinets, cloth tack panels, and glass with stone tops.

The most extraordinary aspect of the space is the monumental stair. Steel stringers and tread pans filled with concrete make up this impressive element. The surrounding wall is curved full-height glass in steel and aluminum shoes. The wall becomes the glass handrail at the landings and continues down the spiral on each side of the stair. The rail itself is composed of stainless steel tubing and supports. The full-height glass wall shoes double as the back supports for the millwork lacquered panels that accent each landing. Integral to the stair are the glass entry doors, which abut the curved glass walls.
