Drawing on the strength of ten senior diversity leaders with more than twenty-eight years of corporate experience, international consulting firm Cook Ross is on a mission to build inclusive cultures. Cook Ross offers expertise in corporate assessments, change management, coaching, and strategic planning, driving inclusive leadership in the world’s most influential organizations. Cook Ross requested structural interior design services for their headquarters in Silver Spring, Maryland that reinforce values of inclusion, diversity, equity, and accessibility.
At Cook Ross, professionals make use of an open concept collaborative office with equal areas for retreat and contemplation. Featuring plenty of comfortable seating, the space blends natural light with a variety of fixtures and finishes. Wood and ceramics are authentic and sustainable, while indigo, violet, and pale-yellow accents are calm, clear, passionate, and bold. Large format portraits of eminent thought leaders punctuate the space, lending a sense of legacy and purpose. Interior planters, textiles, and artwork enhance employee wellness, promote environmental stewardship, and weave global cultures throughout. Blending timeless and contemporary elements, this equitable design sets human progress in harmony with nature.
