Offices For Ryan Gootee General Contractors
Metairie, LA


This existing 9,000 SF former telecommunications switching facility was extensively renovated on the exterior and interior to provide office, warehouse and training space for the new corporate headquarters of Ryan Gootee General Contractors. The design makes use of the generous floor to floor heights and exposes the existing "waffle slab" construction from below for a dramatic ceiling condition. This volume allows natural light to filter through the offices lining the perimeter of the building to the central support spaces via polycarbonate transom panels. These spaces, carved from an organic wood panel enclosure, include mail and copy areas and the custom tailored bid room.
