Project DescriptionPrime Insurance (a specialty insurer) of Sandy, Utah has continued to grow and expand their services. Their headquarters of 30 years was in need of a transformation to better integrate and humanize the work environment for staff. In visioning with the leadership team, TSA recognized that there was the opportunity to express the uniqueness of their brand in their new expansion and renovation. As a specialty insurance provider, Prime is a company that underwrites insurance for unique business models that carry unusual or higher risks such as outdoor outfitters, race car drivers, specialty ventures and the like - where other insurers dare not go.
The solution was to express their bold approach and unique service through a new wing that, though connected and aligned with the regimented and stoic main building, launches in a seemingly untethered curve towards the street. It showcases the well-founded yet daring nature of their business model. An abundance of low-lead glass serve dual purposes - to carry light and transparency from the outside to the interiors from private to open offices, and to telegraph the inner workings of the interior to the outside world. The “heartbeat” of the company, their staff, is allowed to be seen in action from outside like never before.
The addition is composed of 2 levels of offices and a meeting room. Herman Miller-designed work pods are integrated to the workspace, encouraging interactivity throughout different departments. Its organic design allow company culture to flow cohesively.
