Poplar Foundation + Pyramid Peak Foundation
Two Memphis philanthropic foundations teamed up to share new office spaces within a recently renovated Sears distribution facility, previously vacant for 20 years. Each tenant space is primarily made up of private office and meeting rooms.
A central mass of shared common spaces divide the tenants for selective privacy while allowing for shared resources. This primary organizing element is a “bow-tie” shaped mass. The bow-tie also delineates separate entry sequences and offers the capability for dual reception when needed.
