The new space, built out specifically for NG+P, offers clients a“one-stop-shop” for planning, design, inspiration andcollaboration. “While many firms have downsized or gone out ofbusiness in recent years as a result of the economy, we areexperiencing quite the reverse: an increase in projects,recognition for the work we do and a cohesiveness with our designdivision offering clients a unique and seamless solution,” saysKevin Newman, chairman and CEO of NG+P. “Theopenness of our new space fosters collaboration so that theintegration of our capabilities is more cost and timeefficient.”

The new space was a collaboration between LoriMichelle, creative director of NG+P's interior-designstudio, and the architecture studio, and reflects a clean-linedcontemporary feel with a nod to mid-20th-Century. Thenew office also incorporates recycled materials and finishes thefirm's corporate color palette.

“The interior design studio continues NG+P's philosophy ofcreating a cohesive approach to design while catering to the needsof our clientele,” says Michelle. “Our emphasis is on creatingunique, sustainable and sophisticated interior-designsolutions.”

Recent Southern California multifamily projects of note thatNG+P has worked on include the Huxley and theDylan in West Hollywood, the former of which hadits grand opening earlier this month and the latter of which isscheduled for completion this summer. Other notable projectsinclude the 212-unit transit-oriented FoothillCrossing community in Pasadena, to be developed byinternational developer Hines as its firstmultifamily project in California.

The build out is a sign that creative-officespace is making headway in the Orange County market. AsGlobeSt.com reported in March, Orange County, San Diegoand Los Angeles are earlier in the creative-officeevolution than the Silicon Valley because these markets are alsoearlier in the economic-recovery cycle, according to BillHalford, president and CEO of Bixby LandCo. Halford told GlobeSt.com that some of the moreinnovative applications of creative office have not yet hit thesemarkets because “there hasn't been a driving economy to drivepeople to develop new properties” in those regions.
