This rapidly growing software development company needed a fun and engaging work place for its staff to work hard and play hard. The interior build-out started with a full gut of the existing space including removal of the ceiling to create an open concept with exposed structure and ductwork. Acoustic ceiling clouds over the work station clusters helped reduce noise to a comfortable level so daily work could go on without neighborly distractions. A large lounge was imperative to the lifestyle of the programmers who work flexible hours and required a place to eat, drink and hang out throughout the day. Centrally located at the entry, the lounge offers a large family style table, seating island and a pool table.

Open Text

Starting as a University of Waterloo project to search the Oxford English Dictionary, OpenText evolved into a global business productivity software developer. For their US Headquarters, Interwork worked with OpenText to develop  organizational precepts that informed a variety of decisions: first, that “navigating” the space provide a series of paths with opportunities to connect with differing people and functional groups while exploring possibilities throughout the work day that may not have been obvious at the start of a “search”. And second: that the space’s layout express the loosely organized, somewhat idiosyncratic feel or a traditional university campus – classrooms that open to a ceiling less “sky”, conference rooms as forms within a landscape, work carrels and a “commons” dining hall. Interwork engaged in OpenText’s space search, provided office planning and interior design, furniture design and procurement and move management.

Maya Romanoff

Growing from an artist’s studio into an award winning manufacturer of hand crafted wall coverings, Maya Romanoff needed to expand its operations  – Interwork helped convert a vacant, forty year old warehouse into a modern office that expressed their studio roots while providing up to date manufacturing space  – still reminiscent of the 19th century William Morris wallpaper  factory. Hanging “festoons” of drying wall paper inspired the office’s over sized fabric wrapped sliding panels with exposed industrial hardware.  Layers of Maya Romanoff fabrics, layers of patterned carpets and simple gallery white walls create a workspace that expresses the very distinct personality at the core of their mission and culture.  In addition to office design and building design that re-imaged the building exterior and site,  work included  pre-purchase due-diligence, solving manufacturing, warehouse and logistics processes, and major upgrades to building systems.

Lipschultz, Levin & Gray

LLG was looking for a drastic change to their international accounting firm’s corporate culture allowing them to abandon the traditional office/cubicle environment and downsize from 20,000 SF to 7,000 SF. After extensive interviews, surveys and discussion groups a design was developed that went beyond “hoteling” to a more “coffee house” environment. The diverse and flexible office space’s organizational pattern featured in Inc. Magazine reflects their local community feeling as well as their international orientation by incorporating international iconography. In addition to change management and interior design, Interwork provided furniture design and specification.
