Ashlee Patten Group
The Ashlee Patten Group is an investment company located in the Volunteer Building, an office tower in downtown Chattanooga. The existing space had naturally charming features such as a board formed concrete deck, a brick masonry party wall, and windows that capture views of the city. The design emphasized those features as much as possible. An exciting feature was the conference room that was treated as an object in the overall space and was flanked by a curving ramp that functionally negotiated the elevation change, but architecturally reinforced the sculptural quality of the conference room. Additional features included movable partitions to redefine the office as needed, clean wall surfaces for art display, and an open office plan for optimized collaboration.
