La Boutique Office

La Boutique Office is located in the Meat Packing district of Manhattan. It was completed while Principal, Maegan Walton, was a lead designer and project manager at Elmslie Osler Architect.

La Boutique is a photo-retouching studio. The emphasis for this project was to control the way light entered the space so as not to interfere with the delicate atmosphere needed to conduct precise work. Ceiling height screens constructed of corrugated resin and perforated metal were provided between each workstation to filter the daylight and create a subtle glow throughout the office. The large skylight at the entry was surrounded by thick homosote walls, holding the bright light in a sort of canyon to illuminate the striations of tone inherent to the material as it is stacked on it's edge.
