Emerald Oil

Location: Denver, CO
Project Type: Corporate
Project Description:

Emerald Oil is an independent exploration and production company focused on developing oil and gas wells in North Dakota and Montana, and is based in Denver, Colorado. The design of the new headquarters is reflective of the company’s focus on exploration and drilling and focuses attention on the use of natural stone in the main public areas of the new space. In particular, the use of natural white and black marble is showcased in a stunning custom water jet cut pattern that runs through the elevator lobbies and greets guests with an unexpected elegance. The wall behind the main reception desk also showcases a natural stone that reflects the patterns of the layering of sediment and stone in the earth’s crust. The overall aesthetic is one of clean, modern simplicity overlaid with natural materials showcased in unexpected and elegant ways.
