Client: Mercury Gate

Concept: Modern Industry

Mercury Gate wanted to update their office to make work space more functional for their employees, as well as display the unique characteristics of their industry.  Mercury Gate is a large independent transportation management company. In order to allow the space to reflect their industrial focus, we integrated modern elements of stainless steel, dark elements, and sleek finishes along with small rustic touches. The brick-backed reception desk and shipping container conference table, are some of unique highlights of the space. We were able transform their work area and created it with more open access to common areas. Their staff now has plenty of room at their workstations and easy access to the break areas. Mercury Gate commended us on our ability to incorporate elegance with simplicity in their work space.
