A reflection of casual but sophisticated style of doing business
The client requested a workplace that embodied their culture and reflected their operations, balancing the expectations of their international, executive clientele with their casual but sophisticated Vancouver-style of doing business. Functional objectives were to allow for future growth, provide more meeting spaces, create a more engaging and collaborative environment, and maximize access to the spectacular views.
Clean, modern lines, a natural palette of finishes, and a high level of transparency mitigated the requirement of 75% of staff located in private offices. Clients enter into an open lounge and active staff kitchen and espresso bar, making it the heart of the office and the natural encounter point. Relaxed lounges and collaborative meeting areas throughout the office encourage employees to meet outside of their offices and to engage in spontaneous conversation.
