Bingham Greenebaum Doll Indianapolis Office Remodel Shines Light on New Space and Evolving Legal Profession
The firm’s Indianapolis office recently opened its doors to clients, friends of the firm and Indiana Lawyer to experience the recent remodel that better showcases the firm’s brand, personality and support of the local arts.
Firm partner Donald Graham detailed the renovation that started during summer 2015 with the goal of creating a space the firm could use for a variety of events from continuing legal education classes to evening receptions with the publication. The new look has flooded the main entry with natural light that bounces off the neutral colors and flows into the open space. Doors on either side of the conference rooms open into hallways that circle into the main entry. Guests can move freely in and out of the rooms, interacting with each other without getting trapped by a dead end.
Managing partner Tobin McClamroch further explained that the new design reflects how the legal profession is changing. Law firms are hosting more events than they did 10 or 20 years ago because parties and social gatherings are now crucial to business development. Bingham Greenebaum Doll wanted the space to tell clients “who we are,” he said.
Along with the main reception area, the renovation included four floors of attorney offices. New paint, new wallpaper and new carpet updated the look of the workspaces.
Decorating the hallways of the attorneys’ floors are numerous framed art pieces, of which about 45 are from the personal collection of partner James Reed. At his suggestion, the current renovation created a gallery off the main entry for rotating exhibits. The firm has long been a supporter of the local arts community, Reed said, but many artists, especially young ones, need exposure. The gallery will give painters, printmakers and sculptors an opportunity to show their works to a new audience.
