With a move to a three-story, light-industrial/commercial building, ServiceSource was able to accommodate a staff of 200 in one central location. Creating a space that reflects a brand identity in an office constructed for a previous business became the challenge with the constraints of a tenant improvement. Huntsman collaborated with ServiceSource's marketing team to devise a cost-conscious branding effort that bears 20th century icons on the walls of conference and project rooms. The team selected imagery of James Bond, Amelia Earhart and John Lennon standing alone to allude to the company's role as an invisible partner to its clients. With most of the staff working in a call center environment, Huntsman proposed a non-orthogonal workstation layout to create a dynamic configuration on each floor. Interspersed in between are circular booths that provide collaborative teaming space or a quiet reading room. The design was inspired by the yurt, a portable hut originated by Central Asian nomads. ServiceSource's modern adaptations feature custom millwork and are upholstered in fabric keyed to the color scheme for each of the three floors as well as the firm's brand identity.
