Alpha Warranty Office
Alpha Warranty, a car insurance agency, hired Curtis Miner Architecture (CMA) to design a new 3-story, 120,000 SF facility to accommodate their rapidly expanding company. Repeatedly recognized as one of Utah’s top workplaces, the company sought a high-end progressive aesthetic for its new headquarters.
Visitors enter the building on the second level, which is also the main floor, into an expansive lobby. The entrance sets an impressive tone for the entire space with clean contemporary lines and natural details of warm woods and rustic stone lining accent walls. The dynamic space connects guests visually to every level of the building, providing views to both the 1st and 3rd levels.
The third floor is where the work happens; with a smaller lobby and reception area, executive offices, administrative offices, an open space work area with workstations and several single-occupancy restrooms. Also located on the third floor are quiet spaces and gathering spaces. Especially impressive is the 1,000 SF CEO office suite with private balcony. A 370-gallon fish tank separates the executive reception space from the suite, which contains an office and lounge area with a two-way fireplace between.
The first floor recreation area comprises a bowling alley and game room, gym with courts, an exercise room with weights and cardio machines, locker rooms with showers, and restrooms, and a tiered training room.
Interior features provide a subtle nod to the automobile industry. The carpet abstractly reflects the patterns of tire treads. Wire mesh accent ceilings recall the metal on a car’s front grille, while custom accent lights for the hallways were designed by CMA using repurposed car wheels.
