Private Office

Grand Cayman, Cayman Islands

Project Size: 7,900 sq.ft.
Project Cost: US$1,742,000
Completion Date: January, 2005
Project Background:

Only the bestdesign, finishes and furniture were requested by this private investment company when they decided to open an office in the Cayman Islands.... The Client's objective was to create a high-end office but without it being too opulent.

Strategies and Results:

Challenges included the need to incorporate finishes and materials that did not affect the Clients' sensitive allergies; natural stones and woods, latex based finishes, low VOC adhesives and paints and a special air filtration system all contributed to this pleasant environment.

Security was also an issue to the Client. In addition to a comprehensive security system the entry area was not permitted to have any glazing from the common building corridors.

Systems furniture with wood finishes along with extensive custom millwork, stone flooring and leather seating all added to the refined and sophisticated look.

Warm tones and natural materials make for a soothing atmosphere in this work space.

"...The Design was conducted very professionally and efficiently. We had requested an up-market design with some very high-end finishes together with specialist products that reduce allergenic reactions. We found Philip and his design team at OBM, to be most creative and responsive. We now have an office that has a superb combination of both style and function..."
