EF Education First

Denver, Colorado

When EF Education First, a leader in international education, expanded its footprint in Denver, it partnered with Gensler to create an inspired workplace that celebrates its culture and philosophy rooted in global cultural immersion. Throughout the education company's new office, a warm, earthy palette creates an authentic connection to the spirit of Colorado, taking cues from the natural landscape.

EF Education First's Denver Headquarters exudes the Colorado experience in a space that is bright, open, and connected to the natural landscape through biophilic-inspired colors mixed with raw and honest materials and furnishings. The modern workplace design features two hospitality-focused lounge spaces that are linked by a grand, interconnecting stair made of cross-laminated timber, evoking the calming experience of hiking through the forest. Open-plan workspaces, lounges, and larger collaborative zones empower individuals and teams with the flexibility to choose where to work.
