ALA Notary’s Office ambition is to differ from the usual desired opulence of one’s typical notary and law office interior architecture. Its interior, dominated by simple yet elegant custom made oak veneered furniture, revolves around the partially glazed wall that separates the two main spaces of the program: the notary’s office and the waiting room. The glazed wall is pierced by storage boxes and by the secretary's desk which, if needed, extends intro the notary’s office in order to accommodate the typist.
The forced perspective corridor that leads to and from the waiting area gives the illusion that the spaces are twice as closer from the entrance and twice as farther from the exit. This Po-Mo type of irony is continued in the small toilet which has its walls covered in sumptuous Carrara marble.
