Grand Teton National Park Association
HandsOn Designed these lower level offices back in 2004. Our goal was to distribute the natural light from just a few windows throughout the interior, resulting in a series of private windowed offices (sandblasted for privacy) around some open office cubicles. Ten years later the organization was looking more more private spaces. We responded by installing sliding glass doors on custom steel supports between raised cubicle walls that stop short of the ceiling so fire sprinklers weren't affected. We also added custom beech cabinetry along corridors walls, and divided some offices in half with decorative partitions.
