Hauppauge, NY

Program: Sheet Music Distribution Company Offices and Warehouse
Area: 7500 sf
Status: Completed 1992

Mark Music, a sheet music distribution company, occupied an awkward space with two entries;  the side employee entry situated at the threshold between the warehouse space and the offices.  To express this in-between position, the redesign utilized a series of planes on the ceiling rising in the direction of the warehouse.  A wall pierced by three windows creates an axial relationship with this entrance.  The opposite condition occurs at the low-ceilinged front entry.  Now it recedes in planes, drawing visitors into the newly enlarged open work space.  The use of color and a repetitive window module deftly link the two spaces.
