The design concept wrapped the service core in white oak, creating passages through the workspaces in various colors, materials, and lighting effects.
Moto’s solution to clad the service core in wood, set the solid, heavier element in contrast to the perimeter, which became a space that felt open and filled with light. Glass lined offices show that all levels of staff are accessible while maintaining needs for privacy and focus.
A custom milled Corian wall with the corporate logo, cabinetry, cubicles, desks and conference tables, were all designed and fabricated by Moto. These elements bring warm touches of the handmade to the space, furthering the feeling of a workplace that is more welcoming and comfortable.
Existing conditions studies and numerous user-group meetings were necessary to understand headcount of various employee types and how their organization worked in order to set adjacencies for high quality interactive workflow.
The separation and security of public visitation areas required very different access strategies than the primary workspace areas. Secondary egress paths were created to provide company workers a discrete access route to building parking and public transit.
At the building courtyard, cantilevered glazed pods and raised step seating areas were proposed as flex spaces for impromptu meetings and quiet discussions.
