CAMPBELL MITHUN WORK CAFE

This office renovation began with a larger master plan and rethinking of their existing spaces to move away from the traditional perimeter office culture and segregation of departments to one that is more open and collaborative. Ultimately a design that more accurately reflected and influenced their firm’s culture. The master plan focused on a strategy that defined spaces into four categories: “I”, “We”, “Shared”, and “Owned”. This defining of spaces helped the entire client team engage in the design process and allowed them to understand how their program can not just satisfy special needs but inform and transform culture within their organization.
Phase one of the project added a “work café” which has been well received by every layer of the organization and instantly became their primary agency meeting area, lunch space and preferred teaming work area. It’s multi-functioning design was an early goal and vision developed by the design team to make sure this was more then just another a lunch café that was empty most of the day. It’s visual connection to the skyline view and diversity of working spaces allows for small, medium and large groups to occur simultaneously without interrupting the other. The goal of the space was to balance work and play in a way that provided a social gathering space within the firm that currently did not exist. The project also redesigned the main lobby and elevator lobbies on each floor presenting a new fresh image for clients and staff and worked within an aggressive schedule and budget to meet their landlords requirements for year end spending.
