Confidential Financial Firm Tech Incubator

Waterloo, Ontario, Canada

Located at the epicenter of Canada’s research and technology hub, this global financial services firm needed a cutting-edge incubator space to support a new tech business group, with the added intent of attracting and retaining top talent in a highly competitive market. A raw aesthetic with unexpected moments invites exciting face-to-face interactions to spark innovation. Essentially one large meeting hub, the space is anchored by two expansive gateways — the “diner” and the “garage.” The work environment consists of a vast tech talk area, six hackable rooms, an assortment of informal meeting rooms, shared offices, phone rooms, and collaboration lounges. Reconfigurable work settings allow users the flexibility to transform their environments to meet changing workflows.
