Stantec was engaged by custom mapping platform, Mapbox, to design their new offices located in Washington DC.

From their humble beginning in 2010 based out of an old mechanic’s garage, Mapbox sought to create an East Coast Headquarters that represents their success as the leading location data platform for mobile and web applications. In searching for their ideal office, Mapbox desired a space that was reflective of DC and selected a historic building along 15th Street to call home. Originally built in 1906, many of the building’s original finishes were incorporated into the design including original terrazzo and mosaic tile floors, exposed brick walls, and hand-riveted steel columns. New finishes and materials were interlaced with the old to celebrate the building’s history.
