Matching design statements with business philosophies makes good sense.

When a family-owned capital-investment firm Talisman wanted to relocate downtown, their goal was to find an unconventional office space. DCI established the theme of using "honest materials" (brick, concrete, vintage-wooden floors, etc.) to match the client's business strategies, while showcasing technologies.

The result of the design concept is a distinctive 7,000 square-foot space that captures the entrepreneurial spirit of the growing organization. The space is both traditional and contemporary...combining antiques with design classics.

"DCI made it their first priority to understand our business, how we work, and what defines us. They translated their research into an architecture and design plan that works for us from a very practical sense...reflecting how we do business, our style, and values." - Wendy Schutt, Project Manager
