Design Statement:
Our client's vision inspired our team to develop a high energy work environment that reflects the video provider's brand. The new workplace promotes collaboration, innovation, enhanced productivity and performance. This new creative space provides better employee engagement while increasing retention and attracting new talent. Their new campus provides greater social connection, new amenities and healthy lifestyle options. The first hurdle at project inception – bridging the gap over the clients existing high-rise landlords – 3 to be exact! In lieu of a build-to-suit, the client opted to create a Campus from existing architecture – deemed as the largest office space lease in Los Angeles in the past 10 years. One of the greatest aesthetic modifications was to break-away from the historical precedent of this company's origin – aerospace – high paneled workstations surround by fully enclosed private offices. A complete overhaul in visualization, standardization of individual workspaces and business model was required. Education of the client on flexibility, practically and aesthetics was required, not an easy task in what is a historically traditional company. There was a need to express the organization's reputation as a leader in the industry. The most important architectural driver, was to provide an increased quantity of collaborative spaces: 1 conference seat to 1.5 persons to support their business practice – that means 66% of occupants have an additional space to work outside of the typical workstation, and private office – at any given time.
