SLATE Art Consulting helps developers, architects, and interior designers to take their interior design vision to the next level. We curate a bespoke collection for each client that communicates their brand values and makes their property stand out from the crowd as something special and unique. We have experience working with a range of budgets. For a truly customized result, we can commission artworks to be made especially for market-rate and luxury lobbies and amenity spaces. For secondary locations, such as corridors, and for budget-oriented projects, we assemble collections of framed prints pulled from publishers across the United States.

From start to finish, SLATE can provide architectural plan review, project planning, budget development, acquisition, custom frame design, warehousing, artwork delivery, and installation with security hanging systems. SLATE has extensive experience collaborating with designers, architects, and general contractors on both tenant improvement and new construction projects.

SPOTLIGHT: RUSSELL AT BAY MEADOWS

This new-construction multi-family housing project in San Mateo was designed to be hip, moody, and a little edgy, featuring black and white photography throughout. Working with the developer and project team, we identified a theme that nods to mid-century style, and includes street photography, architectural photography, and film-noir cinema.

Responding to the architectural palette of black charred wood with red, orange and ochre accents, we included punches of color in the lobby, club rooms, and at the ends of the corridors, and built a collection of 98 black and white photographs from around the world to fill four floors of corridors in two buildings.

SPOTLIGHT: QUIMBY AT BAY MEADOWS

This multi-family housing project in San Mateo was designed to be a peaceful and relaxing sanctuary – the visual equivalent of a deep breath. The design plan specified a soft neutral palette with tonal blue accents, and references to nature. Thematically, we decided to center the art program around northern California’s coast, so we used a lot of seascape imagery with broad vistas and horizon lines. In the corridors, we interspersed the seascapes with images of other natural elements, including wood and stone. To maintain a certain level of sophistication, we made sure the artwork had a degree of abstraction and held up formally, turning to contemporary Bay Area artists for key pieces in the lobby, club room, and fitness area.

SPOTLIGHT: Hollis@OAK

For this new West Oakland apartment building, we wanted to create a vibe that felt hip and current, balancing urban industrial with a hint of luxury and a splash of organics. Decorative printed artworks and wallpapers were selected to compliment the furnishings in community rooms, a co-working space, leasing office, elevator landings, and corridors.
