The Work

The layout and furniture reflect this culture. Bench-style workstations are grouped along the perimeter window walls. A transparent row of huddle spaces and conference rooms (all with virtual meeting capabilities) are arranged along the north “avenue.” Glass partitions form the walls of these spaces, creating an atmosphere of transparency and connection. The south “avenue” is a more social space. Various seating and table options encourage casual brainstorming, reading, or ongoing chess matches. The “formal” conference room, coffee bar, and library anchor the center core.
The reception area introduces the palette of reclaimed wood and concrete floors. Casual furniture chosen for its sculptural design, accent carpets, suspended pendant fixtures, and super graphics further define the space.
