Located near Autodesk’s headquarters, this expansion space required a redesign to reflect the company’s recently established alternative workplace strategies. The concept starts with transforming the building’s central core into a vibrant hub for surrounding workspace neighborhoods. Private offices were replaced with open work areas interspersed with informal spaces for team collaboration. Team areas feature erasable whiteboard surfaces and tackable partitions to provide extensive space for brainstorming and group problem-solving. Collages of client projects created with Autodesk’s software are featured on graphic walls to mark neighborhood entries.
Certified LEED-CI Platinum, the project incorporates perimeter daylight dimming controls to reduce energy consumption. Bicycle parking, electric vehicle recharging stations, and carpool parking were also integrated into the design.
