Client: Wasserman

Concept: Workspace With All the Comforts of Home

Wasserman’s former Raleigh office was no longer a fit for their evolving needs and growing workforce, so they relocated to Raleigh Iron Works. Here, we helped create a space to bring their employees back to the office and give them various workspaces with a familiar home-away-from-home vibe.

We created a reception area that is warm and inviting against the industrial backdrop of Raleigh Iron Works. Natural daylight permeates the space, supplemented with sleek, decorative light fixtures. The textured elements generate an approachable aesthetic.

Wasserman is a sports and media talent management company representing those who play integral roles across every major global sport, spanning six continents. This group embodies the idea of teamwork, so we created flexible conferencing and social spaces for them to collaborate and connect.

The break room is the heart of the office, bringing employees and visitors together to connect and foster community among their peers. The space is suitable for both small informal meetings and more significant team events. With various seating options, everyone has a space to enjoy lunch or casual interactions.

By incorporating original elements of a revitalized building, the energetic new facade appreciates its historic industrial structure while accommodating a modern work environment.


“I have worked with Tina and her group on several projects and I have always found them to be accommodating to the clients needs. They work diligently to complete projects on time and within scope and always alert the client to any obstacles along the way while working to create resolutions. I would highly recommend TBD and I look forward to working with them on my next project.”
