Davies, Ward, Phillips & Vineberg LLP

When Davies, Ward, Phillips & Vineberg LLP relocated its Toronto headquarters to the RBC Centre, it turned to SOM to transform the loft-like space into an office befitting a prestigious law firm. SOM's design delivers a sophisticated, modern feel through the use of cellular offices and materials such as wood and exposed concrete.

For the private offices, SOM employed a kit-of-parts strategy that allows for a high level of customization. The conference center features upscale finishes and furnishings, along with movable walls that provide flexibility for a variety of gatherings. The interconnecting staircase and staff lounge encourage casual encounters and promote greater interaction among the staff.

The project, which achieved LEED® CI Gold certification, boasts a range of sustainable features including daylight maximization, air-quality control, and eco-friendly materials and fixtures.
