The interior design of this tenant improvement project is equally as hot as the owner’s name suggests. Design elements are bold and distinct, with a multitude of rustic aspects and flavors.
The goal was to create an office environment that embodied the Traeger Brand. The space is a mash up of office, retail, and hospitality functions with an industrial modern feel. Metal elements with expressed fasteners speak to the metal grill itself. Reclaimed barn wood tells the story of the brand’s history, with the firm’s original facility having started in a barn.
The 29,000 SF space and adjoining 3,300 SF patio were designed with a ‘warehouse district’ vibe. A thin brick veneer was used to save floor space and integrity was given to it by wrapping corners for mass and adding a steel lentil to the underside of the brick soffits for authenticity
