MINO Marine Headquarters
The owners of MINO Marine, LLC, a naval architecture and design firm in New Orleans, had outgrown their office space and were looking for a new building that allowed them to expend their operation and better reflected the service that the company provides, while staying within their tight budget.
We utilized pre-engineered structure for the bones of the building and used affordable materials in a way that is reminiscent of a nautical aesthetic. The entrance, formed by the stylized bow of a ship, includes the use of rain chains to mimic those of an anchor. Inside, the ship's structure defines the walls of the public areas, which are made flexible with the use of glass garage doors between spaces, and concludes at the rear of the building with large windows reminiscent of the stern of a galleon. Additional marine features include the use of lap siding and actual boat cleats as door and cabinet hardware throughout.
