Alloy 26 has been deemed the largest co-working space to date in Pittsburgh. Our clients are passionate about the end users of the space, and that’s how we approached the design. The space consists of a new lobby/reception area, event space, co-working spaces, and many private offices that are leased by various tech and startup companies. In support of the event space, Alloy 26 has a catering bar in the reception area. The reception area maintains the exposed concrete ceilings and floors, but provides a hint of “luxe” in its furniture and lighting, in order to harken back to the feel of an old cigar lounge. The design vision of this area was to create a strong, welcoming sense of arrival for members, and powerful first impression to their clients who visit the space. The over-arching goal was to help our local entrepreneurs thrive. When looking closely at the finishes, you’ll find that we did not have to “break the bank” to support this goal. Higher end finishes and fixtures were utilized strategically and sparingly in the space.
