    Necessity is the mother of invention.  The Redwoods Group is a community-focused B Corp that insures youth camps and YMCAs throughout the country.  Having outgrown their classic suburban office park lease, they searched for other locations, but eventually realized that staying put was the right decision.  Our challenge was to take a conventional office space, use a conventional palette of materials, and stay within a reasonable tenant upfit allowance.  But our design needed be anything but conventional.  The company’s culture thrives on innovation and collaboration, and the space had to reflect this.  When money is no limit, it’s easy to create great work spaces.  But when a responsible budget must be kept, creativity becomes even more important.
