Shifting strategy

Redefining leadership through workplace optimization

KPMG Vancouver Offices

Shifting away from office environments of decades past, KPMG looked to revitalize their space, transitioning to an open workspace carefully planned for operational efficiency. With a focus on improved collaboration, KPMG requested increased teaming spaces that would serve to bolster communication and productivity.

To get the best use of space, Kasian developed a detailed functional space program for 7 floors and provided interior design and way-finding services. To maximize space, careful thought was put into material and furniture selection, choosing to use demountable walls to increase flexibility of spaces. Our final design provided KPMG with a naturally lit space that is open and encourages collaboration through increased teaming spaces.
