The design transforms a former Bank of America data center—which was undistinguished, windowless, and never designed for office use—into a first class workspace. Constructed in two phases, the project encompasses nearly 300,000-square-feet of space distributed over four floors. The large 100,000-square-foot floor plates, which allow many employees close proximity to one another, also pose a challenge to organizing space in a comprehensible way.


his challenge was addressed by designing a workplace that relies on principles of urban design; by taking cues from cities such as Dubrovnik and Savannah, the design establishes clear circulation routes with visual landmarks that break down the scale of these vast floor plates.
