RSM – Seattle

Located in Seattle, WA

Back to projects

RSM’s Seattle office wanted a fresh start in a new location and settled on space in a newer building in downtown Seattle that offered more amenities and great views of mountains and the Sound. The owners wanted the office to have a variety of non-dedicated workspaces to support its hybrid work style, as well as showcase the charms of the Pacific Northwest in its décor.

The office brings nature inside, with wood and plants used liberally throughout the space and natural tones like browns and creams on the walls, ceilings, and furniture. In a conference room adjacent to the reception area, a live-edge wooden table is showcased by glass walls. The best views from the office are open to anyone, with public areas along the perimeter where floor-to-ceiling windows also let in natural light. One such room includes a natural gas fireplace.

Two large training rooms have movable partitions so that they can open up onto each other and the break room, allowing RSM the space to host large events. There are no assigned workstations. A variety of seating options accommodate employees’ different preferences and needs, from couches to standing desks, tables to cubicles, and collaboration areas to private alcoves.

RSM’s Seattle office opened in its new location in May of 2022. The space reflects the woodsy style of the Pacific Northwest in its materials and furnishings, while environmental branding helped personalize the space to RSM. A multi-disciplinary team that included architects and interior designers created renderings of all the spaces so that the owners could make choices during the design process and eliminate surprises in the final outcome, helping the project stay on schedule and on budget.
