Inspired by Gensler workplace research that establishes how well-designed offices can help attract talented staff, this legal firm held internal focus groups to determine how best to shape its new space. The results established four key areas of importance: personal space, control over that space, access to daylight and outstanding design. Gensler delivered the new 165,000-square-foot offices, adapting the base building to incorporate all of the firm’s desires. The new space increases collaboration and the feeling of community, and the contemporary design aesthetic reinforces the company’s brand, which was refreshed to align with the new space.
