Emmett & Glander Law Offices

Stamford, CT

Situated in a row of historic townhouses in Stamford, the law firm of Emmett & Glander looked to Fifield Piaker Elman Architects for exterior restoration and interior transformation. By combining the floors of the townhouses, and adding a steel and glass storefront and skylight light wells, FPE transformed this once-dark interior into a spacious, light-filled office. New materials were chosen in contrast to the original, brick-bearing walls. Flush maple paneling, stainless steel handrails, and painted, industrial steel storefronts, glazed in clear and obscure glass, all highlight the two large, kalwall skylights.
