This is the final installment of a three part series spotlighting the McAlpine office interiors. This week: McAlpine Booth and Ferrier‘s Atlanta office.
With a toehold firmly established in Nashville, MBF set its sights on Atlanta. Hartsfield International allows fluid access to an ever expanding client base; the Atlanta Decorative Arts Center and nearby shops offer designers great shopping and personal access to important vendors.
For 10 years, the original Atlanta branch was located in quaint Avondale Estates, seven miles outside the city center. Recently relocated within the bustling complex of ADAC, this iteration is an open studio space artfully defined with furniture, an enormous chandelier and floor to ceiling panels of gossamer drapery. These twelve foot tall fabric shields delightfully filter and hourly interpret the light from the storefront back through two flanking rows of desks and drawings tables to the conference table nestled for meetings.
In this inspired and light embellished place, with clients as muse, the designers gather dreams, hopes and desires to create a loving sense of home. The calm and contemplative use of large scale pieces, bounty from travels, stills the air aswirl with imagery, texture and color.
Here, the daily creative effort is performed with joy and genuine care for those destined beneficiaries. Here, designers reach toward that which is good and lasting, appreciating the gifted foundation they’ve inherited and ever eager for all that remains to be done, seen and created in the name of Home.
