NoonanLance’s new office on the top floor of the historic Pack Lofts building in Downtown San Diego’s East Village is truly one-of-a-kind, and arguably the most unique law office we’ve ever seen!
The space is what I’d call “industrial chic,” with open ceilings, exposed block walls, and original hardwood flooring. From the moment you step out of the elevator (they have the entire fourth floor to themselves where the elevator opens up directly into their lobby), you are immediately welcomed by the richest of textures, colors and tones and surrounded by a feeling of warmth, sophistication and comfort.
The middle of the space has an open floor plan complete with beautiful wood workstations and bright accent furniture. The NoonanLance lobby has an extensive bookcase display of antique law books, a perfect way to welcome clients and guests. Cozy exterior offices are alongside the window-line, offering gorgeous views of the city below. To connect the offices and open areas (and bring natural light into the center of the space), the offices have full height glass storefronts – a great design element that adds even more character to the chic space!
Unique pendant light fixtures and exposed spiral ductwork on the ceiling gives the office an industrial flair. The block walls, concrete accents, wood beams, and wood ceilings are the ultimate mix of natural elements. Congratulations to NoonanLance on such a unique and gorgeous office, and for breaking the mold for law firm design!
