The physical space of their new Toronto office was an opportunity to brand Edelman as THE place to build a long-term career in the PR industry. Edelman worked with Bartlett & Associates to deliver an integrated hospitality and workplace concept with elements appropriate to engage the agency's increasingly young employees with local character.
ROSSETTI designed the dense work station format to include Herman Miller sit-to-stand flexible work stations, demountable wall offices, and open, brightly lit rooms. A variety of activated lounge spaces encourage spontaneous meetings. For their new cafeteria, Quicken Loans asked for an all-you-can-eat approach. The vibrant space has the potential to activate a 24/7 youth culture movement that will power the Detroit cityscape forward.
Said Yuri Van Mierlo, manager corporate real estate at Unither, "We've experienced a 10-fold increase in inter-departmental interaction since the building opened. We highly value collaboration, and the new building provides intentional and coincidental opportunities to achieve just that."
The Rocky Mountain regional office has reduced allocated space per employee by 48%, from 145 square feet per person down to 100.

Fewer square feet per person allows for a larger workforce in the same envelope, and when a workstation's cost to build can be halved, it becomes easier to grow.

Playboy's new headquarters is a tale of two eras, mixing Don Draper's retro and rebellious vibe with Ryan Gosling's modern-day Hollywood glamour. There were lots of angles to this project: some hospitality, some office space, and some technical," said Tim Gajewski, associate at Wolcott, the team behind the design.
We call this tenant-improvement project Hayden Place. It--Ã¢â€žÂ¢s targeted for LEED Gold certification, and it makes a stylish-but-sustainable statement thanks to its efficient-energy systems and innovative design features.
