FOCUS: Innovative Office Spaces

Shipman & Goodwin LLP

Headquarters: One Constitution Plaza, Hartford

No. of Employees: 250 in Hartford

When Shipman & Goodwin planned to renovate its office a few years ago, redesign of its existing outdoor patio and employee lunch/lounge area was a top priority.

Now known as Lenny's Place, the new space provides a bright, comfortable relaxing gathering place for staff and attorneys that also translates easily into a professional, inviting setting for larger (and evening) client and alumni events.

The open floor plan highlights the large windows that wrap around three sides of the space, including the full length of the side that leads out to the patio and overlooks downtown Hartford. The indoor space has a modern, edgy style with blue walls and white drop ceilings. Furniture includes tables and chairs, large lounge chairs and a separate TV area.

In addition to extending the open floor plan to the outdoor patio area, outside lighting was installed for evening events.

The outdoor space was named in honor of Lenny Schoolnick, a longtime member of the office services staff who died in 2013.

Tecton Architects and PAC Group LLC helped with the office space design.
