Crisp design for firm's space.


Having established a significant reputation as a litigator with a prominent national law firm, Gregory P. Joseph founded his own practice and, having grown it considerably in two years, turned to Butler Rogers Baskett to design the firm's new offices. The results: a graceful plan and sleek, crisp modern aesthetic--convey the dynamism, efficiency, and seriousness of purpose of this enormously successful and highly competitive legal practice.

Gregory P. Joseph, Law Offices LLP, is at 485 Lexington Ave., a building whose 13,500 rentable s/footage precisely matched the firm's needs. They were therefore able to take sole occupancy of the entire 30th floor, with its Manhattan views. Because GPJ has just 14 attorneys, BRB developed a plan that gives each a private, three-window office, leaving sufficient square footage for generous corridors and devoting the interior core spaces to the library and file functions critical to a litigation practice. The reception area, too, is windowed, the natural light and views making for a dramatic welcome. As GPJ is the floor's only occupant, the elevator lobby flows seamlessly into reception, the continuity heightened by the daylight that floods both spaces and by the honed white Siberian marble flooring they share.

Other attributes include transparent glass partitions and a continuous light bar for the conference center.
