Law Firms Case Study
Orrick Herington & Sutcliffe, LLP
San Francisco, California
Orrick, Herrington & Sutcliffe, one of the oldest and most well-respected law firms in the world, has more than 170 lawyers in its San Francisco office
The requirements for many legal spaces—including attorneys’ offices, conference and deposition rooms, boardrooms and other special spaces—dictate that walls, floors and ceilings must meet a high degree of airtightness, sound absorption and constructability. Orrick, Herrington & Sutcliffe’s office was no different.
The project integrated requirements for speech privacy and control of unwanted noise and vibration from the HVAC systems with a high-design aesthetic and sustainability concepts envisioned by the architectural team.
The LogiSon® Acoustic Network was installed throughout selected open-plan, closed-office and support spaces—a choice that was made because each speaker’s sound level and frequency balance could be controlled from a laptop computer.
