CWB’s design for the Bark and Co. office won a Merit Award from SARANY. Playing off an existing renovation of Bark’s main floor, CWB considered the client’s desire for Scandinavian design and tight budget when customizing their newly expanded office. The renovation was part of a master plan that CWB developed at the outset for this growing company, considering how future expansion would integrate with existing infrastructure. Bark began with a focus on the dog owner who feels that “dogs aren’t pets; they’re family,” recently developing several branches of the business including monthly product box subscriptions, outreach for pet adoption, dog-friendly live events, and a related media outlet.
Leah Solk, the Project Manager for the renovation and master plan, received the award at SARANY’s ceremony.
