Renaissance Strategic Advisors (RSA) develops industry-leading insights for the national security market. Supporting premier firms in aerospace, defense, space, intelligence, and the government service industry, the RSA team sees themselves as “renaissance men.” For their new home at 1300 Wilson Boulevard in Arlington, VA, the theme was to create a sophisticated modern space with a subtle nod to classical Renaissance art and architecture. A chevron marble reception floor sets the stage for RSA’s new home and is accompanied by a palette of deep navy blue, crimson, warm whites, raw steel, and accents of rich walnut, creating a timeless space. The breakroom encourages collaboration and communal connectivity for both professional and interpersonal dialogue. It was designed to function as two separate environments: one with casual lounge seating and banquette seating and the other with a large custom “family style” table made of planks of reclaimed wood and raw steel. A free-standing custom entertainment center divides the space and houses AV requirements for impromptu meetings.
