Hyder Construction

From the moment we started this journey with Hyder, it was clear we shared a vision for the building’s potential. Together, we collaborated on the design to create a space that supports Hyder’s culture, celebrates their craft and preserves the unique sense of place that comes with working in a historic building.

We added a large open stair to create connection and promote circulation through the building, positioning it with the best view to connect employees to nature and encourage use throughout the day. To maintain a sense of character and place, we kept a number of rugged mainstays original to the building, such as the exposed brick and ghost signs from legacy businesses that told a story of industry that resonated strongly with Hyder’s culture.

New and historic construction techniques were brought to the forefront in the design, subtly reinforcing Hyder’s trade. All of these diverse elements were pulled together with a cohesive color palette, finishes, soffit detail and decorative light fixtures throughout the space.

Culture is everything in this day and age, and this building has gone above and beyond what I thought it could do. These are not cookie-cutter designers. They really helped us create our dream.”
