The San Francisco office of the Advisory Board Company wows visitors the moment they step off the elevator with a stunning walnut veneer design.
Designed by architectural millwork company Commercial Casework, the hallway features a stunning contrast of high-end plastic on one side and rift-cut, center-balanced, book-matched Timber Products walnut veneer panels on the other. The building block theme continues in the reception lobby that features a desk adorned with horizontal walnut veneer that interlocks with a white Carrara marble accent. All the grain in the storage wall that sits behind the reception desk matches the materials from the hallway and the desk.
Commercial Casework had only about five weeks for planning, material procurement, fabrication, layout, and engineering. Obtaining roughly 2,000 square feet of the horizontal walnut veneer with the correct grain pattern was a challenge, but the project was a success with timely and quality delivery from Timber Products.
