Wells Fargo Energy & Power Group Relocation
Wells Fargo CPG wanted to relocate their Energy & Power Group to the 12th floor of the 71-story Wells Fargo Plaza Tower in Houston, Texas. Their goal was to integrate stakeholders into one suite with private and public zones, create a gathering space for client networking functions, and implement Wells Fargo’s brand standards throughout the space.
RS&H was commissioned to provide planning, interior design, construction documents, and construction administration services for 25,000 square feet of tenant lease space. The program was organized into two zones: Private spaces with secure access for Wells Fargo employees comprised of private offices, team meeting rooms, workstations, commodities trading, central café, and support spaces and public spaces with a focus on brand image showcased by a reception rotunda leading to day-lighted multi-purpose lobby bordered by conference rooms and a boardroom that seats twenty.
The visitor experience begins at the rotunda that elegantly opens up at an angle to a public lobby. Strategic design placement and orientation of the lobby allotted scenic views and ample daylight. Artificial lighting was required to provide a warm and comfortable effect for evening events. Bordering conference rooms and boardroom create a harmonious flow of materiality and edge conditions transitions.
