Brinks, Inc. created a new department to foster strategic developments and business practices worldwide, and they needed to create space within their existing offices that would be stimulating enough to foster collaborative brainstorming and imagining sessions and yet flexible enough to accommodate individual work and focused concentration.
Balancing these dual goals of the budget-conscious client, Hahnfeld Hoffer Stanford opened up 2,000 square feet in a corner of Brink’s offices by removing barriers to natural light and clearing the ceilings to the deck to create more volume. Smaller collaboration rooms were added around the perimeter with each room set up with different color schemes and furniture layouts. These rooms have tackable work surfaces, cork walls and marker board walls, and video monitors for inspiration sessions.

Dunaway Associates, a civil engineering and landscape firm, was moving to new offices from a space they had outgrown and that had not been updated in 10 years. Located in a Class A, mid-rise office tower, the 30,000 square feet chosen for renovation was a typical maze of partitions and offices. To open it up, the entire floor was gutted except for the existing IT room, which was to serve the same purpose. The six corners of the floor plan were left open for workstations to allow light into the core area, all offices have front glass walls, and workstation heights were kept under 54 inches. Doors off the lobby are glass and the space is open to the exterior glass on both sides, which allows a view to the outside from the lobby.

The North American Headquarters for Weir Oil & Gas was designed with the owner’s keen awareness of international style and desire to marry it with aspects of Texas style. This unique co-mingling of aesthetics resulted in interior features such as a three-story atrium linking all floors together visually and bringing natural light into the building. The presence of light is further enhanced with glass curtain walls, large skylight wells, and low workstation panels with glass tops.
The 62,639-square-foot building is designed functionally with public spaces on the ground floor, general staff offices on the second floor and the executive suites on the third floor with scenic views of Fort Worth and beyond. In addition to programming and building design, Hahnfeld Hoffer Stanford designed or specified all interior elements, including the furniture and art packages.
Sid Richardson MuseumSid Richardson Museum | Interior Design | Construction Administration | Graphics
A landmark in downtown Fort Worth’s Sundance Square, the Sid Richardson Museum is enjoying a new era of popularity with major upgrades that enhance the viewing of its priceless collection of Western art, including more than 60 paintings by Frederic Remington and Charles M. Russell.
Beginning with the exterior, a new granite, brick and glass façade was installed to give the museum a more open and inviting look. Inside, gallery spaces were reconfigured and the building was expanded by 1,800 square feet to accommodate a new group entrance and more education space for a broadening array of programs. Upstairs, 4,000 square feet of Museum Foundation offices were renovated.
This project was a collaborative venture of Hahnfeld Hoffer Stanford and DMS Architects, with HHS providing Local and Architect of Record services.

Corporate Office headquarters for an Oil and Gas company. This client moved into the 4th floor space of a new office building in the Arts District of Fort Worth. It was important to have the feel of a ‘home’ atmosphere, classic and traditional designs as well as quality products.
CONCEPT: Our client wanted the richness and elegance of a traditional Fort Worth, Texas office space. High end materials such as wood flooring and paneling, stone mantels and countertops, and specialty lighting were to be used throughout the space.
SOLUTION: Traditional planning layout of offices was used with offices on the window wall. The reception area and conference room is finished with Cherry wood floors, wood wall paneling and wood ceilings. The richness of the wood is complemented with leather seating, beautiful area rug, accent antique furniture, and a large granite conference table. The two large executive offices were designed with comfort and beauty in mind. Each has the beautiful wood flooring and paneling, custom stone mantels, built in bookcases and display areas, private restrooms, luxurious area rugs, and leather seating. The office break room is reflective of high end custom home with stainless steel appliances, granite countertops, and stone backsplash. All of the office doors are cherry paneled rail and style doors with oil rubbed bronze hardware. The common corridors have wood paneling wainscot with custom polish plaster above on the walls, and the floors have cherry wood borders with a plush carpet insert.
