In an industry where high stress is the name of the game, Abacus Wealth Management wanted its office to put clients and employees at ease.

To balance these needs with additional goals of sustainability, quality and craft, NBBJ choose a strategy that highlights the lobby, conference rooms, offices and meditation room with transparency and warmth. A highly-sophisticated palette of materials is used, including reclaimed driftwood, polished concrete, living green walls and Caesarstone. The addition of glass throughout the office capitalizes on the natural beauty of Santa Monica, while allowing light to reach deep into the interior.
