Revolution Agency Renovation
Revolution Agency is a strategic communications firm in Old Town Alexandria that needed help designing, renovating, and transforming their existing office so that the physical space would be a reflection of their creative, forward-thinking communication services. ALine Architecture assisted the client with test fits and space planning options, created concept designs and construction documents, oversaw construction administration, and navigated the required Old and Historic District Preservation Boards of Architectural Review (BAR) hearings.
When creating the new interior space, it was essential that ALine Architecture’s design inspired creativity while catering to the unique functional needs of a creative business like Revolution Agency. To achieve both goals, ALine Architecture developed a layout that included large open plan work areas for creative graphic design studios, audio-video editing offices, partner offices, and a break room with a kitchenette. New lighting systems, historical preservation of exterior facade work, the addition of the 3rd floor finished space and a new egress stair on the exterior of the building took the design and the real estate value to the next level, maximizing the ROI.
