HCD International Headquarters

Location: Washington, DC

Located in Lanham, Maryland, the 12,000 sf office space is the headquarters of an award-winning women-owned health care management and technology consulting firm.

In 2004, when the company first moved in, the space lacked access to daylight and was subdivided into claustrophobic high-walled cubicles. As providers of health-equity and technology-enabled solutions, HCDI knew it needed to upgrade its office space so that it mirrored its core values.

The design integrates dark and light sequences to interrupt a static image, and to create a harmonious sense of continuity in the architectural narrative. The use of light is varied within different contexts; more subdued in the communal lounging areas and brighter in the offices to aid concentration.The center point is a large custom steel planter to add visual interest, and also awaken the senses. Foliage and greenery are strategically placed throughout the office that beautifully complement the office. They act as visual pauses, air purifiers, and stress alleviators that improve the office environment.
