Design Statement:
When this global real estate firm merged with an Orange County brokerage, the new entity faced a significant cultural challenge. One company was conservative, operating from cubes and private offices; the other was progressive, openly communicating as a group. Unlike most brokerage firms, this company would work as a team, not a group of individuals competing against one another. "Through this merger, we needed to build a custom shoe to fit our culture and our future workspace needs," summarized the senior managing director, "and you can't do that if you move into someone else's space." The design for the new 13,810-square-foot office is tailored to inspire a team culture while supporting a range of work styles. By co-locating related groups and encouraging random encounters, the layout creates intra-organizational collaboration, which transcends work-style differences. All employees can choose from a variety of settings. Openly collaborative areas support progressive, activity-based working and efficient idea exchange. For impromptu meetings and close focus, quiet rooms, phone rooms, and conference rooms offer privacy. Managing directors and above have the option to work in open collaborative areas or private offices visually accessible through sliding glass doors. In this diverse setting, the multifunctional great room engenders a sense of community. An employee favorite, this centrally located, amenity-rich space is a magnet for collaboration. If employees are not at their desks, this is the place to look. Overall, the workplace strategy aligns business and culture in an engaging team-centric environment
