A very different building for a very different type of law firm
Recent Feature: "Going Green"
The Briefs - Orange County Bar
We all have a responsibility to help make our community better. When we set out to construct our 60,000 square foot building on Keller Road in Orlando with renowned architect, Raymond Scott, we wanted to leverage sustainable materials and minimize our carbon footprint. We think our eco-friendly, multiple State and National Award Winning, "Green" building does just that with numerous thoughtful, well planned features. From the outdoor "tree house" feel of our patios to the 3 story dramatic and colorful glass atrium entrance, the environment is unlike anything else in Central Florida...guaranteed:
Natural trees to shade the building
Minimal paints and adhesives that contain volatile organic compounds (VOC’s), which produce noxious fumes and decrease ambient air quality
Recycled tiled carpet that is easy to remove when stained or when remodeling (cradle to cradle)
Natural light that is available to the wider reaches of the office by orienting workspaces toward windows
Low-emissivity glass to reduce the effect of the exterior temperature on the office
Implementation of systems that monitor and manage energy and lighting uses
Solar window shades, passive landscaping, low wattage lighting, water usage controls on all faucets, rainwater collected and discharged in green area
The interior of the building embraces the natural light passing through large windows on the north side of the building allowing us to use less lighting, whereas the south has smaller windows with shades to help control the heat. Virtually all desk placements allow employees natural light. Finish materials like paint, wall covering, dropped soffits, slat walls, raised plexi, art work and millwork were selected to add an additional layer of dimension and interest to interiors.
Large outside patios on the second and third floors have a “tree-house” look and feel. Visitors have the choice to be shaded by the use of trees and/or artwork or to enjoy the direct sunlight. We also have a fitness facility on premises because physical health clearly enhances mental well-being and productivity.
And, for your listening enjoyment, the entire building is wired for stereo sound. This is not your typical and overly abundant "box" construction. The character of this space is found in the unique stamp of a world renowned architect with a blend of angles, glass, core tam steel, aluminum, rock, landscaping, and other materials that create a beautiful work of art that meshes flawlessly with its well preserved surroundings. Most importantly, it reflects the "outside the box" thinking that sets Riley Allen Law apart.
We welcome your visit to our office.
