Local tech company SIGNiX provides patented, secure e-signature technologies for legal documents. When they moved their offices to Warehouse Row, they needed help adapting their distinctly modern aesthetic to downtown Chattanooga’s historic industrial context. Economy and simplicity were paramount. Our design left the majority of the existing envelope unaltered and exposed, including the brick and timber ceiling joists. New elements—including furnishings, custom workstations and a branded entrance—were kept clean and minimal to avoid visual competition with the historic surroundings. Reusing existing materials to design a simple, streamlined workspace, HK brought out the best in both the building and the business.
