Spacesmith renovated and expanded this global giant’s office into an adjacent space. This phased renovation was coordinated with the client’s design, construction and facilities team. The design reduced the number of private offices and removed high partitioned cubicles. The open bench seating system improves communication and allows employees to enjoy natural light and spectacular panoramic views of downtown Philadelphia.Two glass partitioned “huddle rooms” provide privacy for small client meetings while remaining visually part of the space. They also enjoy state of the art technology with video and teleconferencing capabilities for small and spontaneous gatherings, thus leaving the conference rooms available for larger groups. “Telephone booths”, small rooms for employees to retreat to, meet the need for occasional confidentiality and privacy. Private offices with glass fronts surround the “bull pen” area; yet executives find the open plan work stations so comfortable that they often join their teams for the ease of communication and to enjoy the views and daylight.
