Southlake, Texas/4,600 square feet
Independence Title is a 4,600 SF suite in the Kimball Park office building in Southlake, Texas. The office is located just off the ground floor lobby, with vertical windows that accentuate the height of the space. Through the windows, visitors see an industrial-inspired living room setting. It was important to make clients feel at home within the space as they embark on purchasing their own home. Visitors can enjoy a cup of coffee and relax in an intimate seating group. Robust natural materials such as brick, metal, stone, and wood give the design a sense of stability and longevity. Another important feature was to emphasize the transparency of the title process. Clear views across the space and the expansive use of glass, including in private offices, gives visitors the sense that Independence Title’s inner workings are open and inviting. The same “open book” theme is carried through in an open floor plan and exposed-structure ceilings. Glass-front offices also provide democracy of light to all of employees. The break room invites team interaction and collaboration with a community island, dining nook, and candy bar.
