PHOENIX– Ware Malcomb, an award-winning international design firm, today announced construction is complete on the new offices of the Professional Beauty Association located at 7755 East Gray Road in Scottsdale, Arizona. Ware Malcomb provided interior architecture and design services for the project.
The Professional Beauty Association made the move to their new office location to accommodate the organization’s growth. The 17,000 square foot tenant improvement project included the creation of private offices, huddle rooms, conference rooms, a gym and a break room. The design incorporated a feature staircase to an existing mezzanine area that was previously inaccessible, providing a striking focal point to the space as well as increasing its functionality. Prior to demolition, the space had been used as a restaurant.
The design features an open floorplan concept highlighting exposed ceilings throughout the space, creating a modern and industrial feel. New skylights and exterior windows were added to bring more natural light to the space. A neutral color palette is accentuated with pops of color that reflect the Professional Beauty Association brand. Modern finishes complete the design, incorporating various materials including ceramic tile, luxury vinyl tile, carpet and quartz countertops.
“It is always exciting to have the opportunity to completely demo and reimagine a space through the lens of our client,” said Kevin Evernham, Principal of Ware Malcomb’s Phoenix office. “In addition to providing more space to accommodate current and future growth, the new offices of the Professional Beauty Association are a perfect reflection of the organization’s energy, brand and culture.”
