On\nOctober 20, GGLO held an open house at their new office. The compact and\nelegant structure espouses GGLO\u2019s design philosophy as well as the firm\u2019s\nrespect for and commitment to Boise as the firm\u2019s Mountain West hub. "]]],[1,"p",[[0,[],0,"\u201cGGLO has been\nworking in Boise for almost 20 years and we \u2018planted the flag\u2019 in leased space\nhere in 2019,\u201d said GGLO Landscape Architecture Principal Mark Sindell. \u201cNow,\nwe have situated ourselves in a space we created\u2014utilizing our integrated\ndesign capabilities that express our collective design philosophy and our\ncommitment to the Treasure Valley. We couldn\u2019t be more thrilled with the\nresults.\u201d "]]],[1,"p",[[0,[],0,"Sited at Fifth and\nGrove in the Old Boise neighborhood east of downtown, the modern building\nincludes three floors that feature 2,245 usable square feet of office space\nwith open floor plates and complementary landscaping. \u201cThis was an exciting\nopportunity to create an elegantly proportioned structure that responds to the\nrhythms and proportions of the downtown fabric,\u201d said design architect Sean\nCanady. \u201cOur architecture, landscape architecture, and interior design teams\nworked in harmony to optimize the use of a constrained urban site and establish\nvisual connections between inside and outside. We selected honest, quality\nmaterials and details\u2014implementing them in a simple, well-crafted way that\nrespects both human scale and urban integration.\u201d"]]],[1,"p",[[0,[],0,"The building\u2019s\nmassing includes two distinct vertical elements. The larger form features open\nfloor plates for users with several large windows facing the park across the\nstreet at the front and downtown to the northeast. A slightly smaller elevation\nthat faces the alley is composed of a rhythmic series of vertical windows and\nhouses the main entry and essentials such as elevators, stairs, restrooms, and\nmechanical closets. "]]],[1,"p",[[0,[],0,"The exterior is\nclad in tightly spaced, charcoal-hued, corrugated metal panels that cascade\nvertically from roof to foundation. Windows are large, operable, and framed\nwith a combination of flat, metal, and angled wood panels. The combination of\nmaterials creates a restrained rhythm on the building\u2019s fa\u00e7ade."]]],[1,"p",[[0,[],0,"The interior of\nthe building features open floor plates accented with warm wood and minimal\ndrywall to intentionally expose the structure. \u201cThe goal was to keep the\ninteriors warm, flexible, and inviting, and to allow materials to remain as\nnatural as possible,\u201d said GGLO Interior Design Principal Kimberly Frank. \u201cThis\nis in keeping with several of our key design principles, including doing fewer\nthings better, reducing our carbon footprint, and supporting employee wellness\nand equity.\u201d Exposed wood ceiling joists on each level enhance the open feeling\nof the space and provide warmth and natural texture that can also be seen from\nthe street. "]]],[1,"p",[[0,[],0,"In GGLO\u2019s own\noffices, furniture solutions\u2014chosen with an eye toward support for\nenvironmental sustainability\u2014provide open space for individual work and\ncollaboration opportunities, as well as glass-enclosed conference rooms for\nprivate meetings with clients and teams. \u201cRecognizing that hybrid work is here\nto stay, we\u2019ve designed the space to focus on flexibility and provide multiple\nopportunities for collaboration,\u201d said Frank. \u201cSo far, we are finding that our\nstaff enjoying working in the new space and are opting to be here when they\ncan.\u201d"]]],[1,"p",[[0,[],0,"The landscape at\nthe Fifth and Grove office naturally infiltrates stormwater, and the selected\nplantings intentionally acknowledge their surroundings. The building\u2019s green\nroof is planted with Idaho Siskiyou Blue Fescue\u2014allowing folks in the\nneighboring building a view that nods to the Boise foothills beyond. Planters\nalong the alley include resilient Golden Sedges for drama and contrast with the\ndark building siding, while raised planters around the building are populated\nwith Equisetum\u2014drawing inspiration from the sedges and rushes along the Boise\nRiver."]]],[1,"p",[[0,[],0,"The Fifth and\nGrove Office is being submitted for LEED Gold for Core and Shell certification\nand includes wellness strategies, such as accessible stairwells, operable\nwindows, and expansive access to natural light. For the interior tenant\nimprovement, the office is also pursuing LEED Operations \u0026 Maintenance (O\u0026M)\ncertification. In addition to architecture, interior design and landscape\narchitecture services by GGLO, the building team includes developer deChase\nMiksis; contractor Andersen Construction; civil engineering services by The\nLand Group, structural engineering by Axiom PLLC; mechanical, electrical, and\nplumbing (MEP) by Musgrove Engineering; and FF\u0026E procurement by Porter."]]],[1,"p",[[0,[],0,"Since our founding\nin 1986, GGLO has been committed to connecting people through beauty and\ninnovation.
