If you think the outside of the QCI Asset Management Inc. office is cool, you should check out the interior.
QCI has been in the state-of-the-art facility on Route 96 in Bushnell’s Basin since August 2018.
What was originally a bland concrete building now features Shou Sugi Ban or charred cedar, an ancient Japanese technique of preserving wood.
Large weathered COR-TEN steel planters and a dry creek bed lead to a peaceful outdoor sitting area, while QCI’s sign is hand made of COR-TEN and illuminated at night.
Inside, the open floor plan is complemented by floor-to-ceiling glass offices, a handmade edge wood conference table in the main conference room, and beautiful, state-of-the-art OLEDWorks lighting throughout the office. A floating wood cloud decorates the lobby, and wood baffles run the perimeter of the ceiling.
The OLEDWorks lighting system is energy efficient and provides a “happy light spectrum” for employees and clients.
