Redefining the meaning of a “best in class” workplace, Barclays repurposed a vacant campus in suburban New Jersey to attract top talent with an amenity-rich workplace. The Barclays campus design centers on authentic experiences and choice, with a holistic live-work-play perspective. The campus’s verdant setting led to a design aesthetic featuring a natural, farmhouse style. Authenticity was an overarching theme of Gensler’s design. An authentic workplace fosters a sense of connection, and the experience offers employees a diversity of settings tailored to bolster their individual work styles—from focused, to collaborative, to creative.
