This Fortune 50 company specializes in software products, operating systems, and business and consumer applications, and they have offices around the globe in Europe, Asia, and the Middle East. The company’s headquarters in Redmond, Washington, encompasses 500 acres and features innovative office spaces, corporate dining venues, recreational facilities, and unique collaborative hubs that encourage creativity, engagement, and a strong corporate culture.
This client relies heavily on team collaboration for problem-solving and innovation, so when they decided to renovate a wing on the first floor of one of their offices, they came to Salas O’Brien for help making the space conducive to those goals. The project aimed to make the space more open and collaborative and to improve the flow by creating a new open space in the area of highest traffic flow.
Our design reconfigured several perimeter offices to create a new communal area in the center of the renovated space. New sliding glass doors and glass walls divide the area while maintaining an open, collaborative vibe. The project also included a redesign of the communal kitchens to create new areas for impromptu meetings.
Our design significantly improved circulation throughout the space and its overall functionality. The finished communal area makes ample use of natural light and features panoramic views to the outdoor landscaping.
