Confidential Energy Client

Charlotte, North Carolina

This confidential energy client is uniquely positioned as both a legacy company and industry disruptor due to its innovative approaches to energy products and services. Optimist Park in Charlotte provides a dynamic workplace for the next generation of workers in the energy sector — a modern innovation center where project teams craft new, customer-focused experiences. Located in a 130-year-old textile mill, the Gensler Charlotte design team respected the historic fabric, while adding new elements to create an open and agile workplace. Traditional windows, exposed wood floors, and white-painted ceilings honor the historical nature of the space while refreshing its aesthetic. The overall workplace design strategy was centered around providing ample access to views and light.
