(now Locke Lord LLP)


Vision 3 re-designed 74,000 s.f. of office space spanning the top 6 floors of One Financial Plaza, for Edwards Wildman Palmer, one of the largest law firms in Rhode Island. The renovation included a reorganization of departments for a more functional and efficient layout, new reception, waiting area, and conference rooms. The image of the firm was updated through the use of natural materials such as wood, natural stone and glass. The three large conference rooms located directly off the reception/waiting area were designed with foldable glass partitions to allow the individual spaces to open into one large space for the purpose of holding receptions.


“Vision 3 conducted an extensive evaluation of our existing space in order to understand our business process and vision. Because we were reducing space from 7 floors to 6 floors, a reorganization of space that could serve more than one purpose was important. Vision 3 transformed our offices into bright, efficient, multi-functional spaces that successfully support how we conduct business and business gatherings. Their attentive, responsive and accommodating service has allowed the space to meet our expectations and more. We love the impressive design details introduced at our reception area and how they are strategically carried through the rest of our space so that staff can appreciate them. The break room also serves as a meeting room due to the adjacent but separate placement of food services areas. Vision 3 knows how to turn dilemmas into solutions.”
