project overview

BLRB was engaged to provide interior design, finish selection, and construction administration services for the Tacoma offices of the Washington State Attorney General at Pacific Plaza. BLRB worked in cooperation with the Washington State General Administration’s architects to bring the space to a heightened level of design. In addition, BLRB’s team worked closely with the contractors to keep the project within a very tight budget.

The design concept grew from a desire to modulate the walls conveying interest through the use of contrasts in color and light. Natural daylight and views were used as dominant guiding principles in the placement of glazing and open spaces. The color palette is bold yet simple bringing significance where it is most desired. The most public facade found on the street level became an opportunity for a gallery type expression – oversized art and specialty materials were placed closest to the street by the building owner to help enhance the public experience.
