MALARIA NO MORE HEADQUARTERS
MALARIA NO MORE HEADQUARTERS, Seattle
The NYC-based non-profit Malaria No More sought a space for its new headquarters in Seattle. I led their leadership through a series of space planning strategy sessions to determine anticipated staffing, location, and square footage needs. I then directed the search for the space with local real estate agents including feasibility studies and test fits, securing a lease on a full floor (cold shell) of a newly constructed building on Eastlake Avenue.
DA’s design of the space, including furniture and art, was driven by the entrepreneurial organization’s desire for transparency, simplicity and vibrancy. A bright orange wall with a custom-designed reception desk and seating welcomes visitors and separates the floor into two zones. In the visitor's zone, storefront window walls allow views into the bright conference rooms. The employee zone features a large open work area which takes advantage of the available natural light and views of Lake Union.
