A focus on functionality, flexibility, and productivity drives the design for CBRE's Houston office — the largest Workplace 360 location to date. The workplace design is a functional space that encourages mobility and productivity through a technology-enabled, free-address and paperless office. Employees are empowered with the choice to work at 40 unique types of work settings. The majority of work settings focus on socialization and collaboration activities, reflecting a continued trend in workplace design to accommodate diverse workstyles. The central staircase is part of a larger multi-function lounge area that creates a social hub that serves as the heart of the space. This high-impact area turns what was once a series of wide columns into an architectural statement piece that acts as both a wayfinding device and natural spatial separator.
