Project Overview

United Rentals commissioned Los Angeles, Ware+Malcomb Architects to design a new Corporate Headquarters in Stamford, CT. UR has a very strong culture around precision and performance. They also appreciate fine art and creativity.

As W+M developed the design, Image 4 was asked to specify materials that reflected precision and beauty, and to design structural presentations throughout the building. Our design team combined high-tech and organic materials, graphic representations of heavy equipment, and Brand Touchstones to present UR’s Authentic Brand.

The Executive Lounge area features a very large wall mural collage of construction equipment images, against which we placed a graphic panel of reclaimed barnwood and aged hardware. The Executive Lobby juxtapose cast resin panels with polished steel hardware and lighting spot-lighting. Backpainted glass added depth to corporate break-out rooms, and stretch-canvas graphic prints of construction machinery accent wall areas through the building.
