The objective of this project was to create a vibrant creative office for international video conferencing experts, Zoom. Occupying more than 6,500 square feet in a dual split level building, we had to create an intuitive flow between the building’s four levels that would effectively fulfill the company’s program and employee needs.
A ground level entry welcomes clients by way of product showrooms and displays as a means to demonstrate and ultimately sell their communications technology. The upper level features open-plan office space for sales staff around a two-level atrium, as well as conference rooms, break-out rooms and a mother’s room.
The building’s basement was designed exclusively for staff and includes open-plan office space, small meeting spaces for teleconferencing and a show kitchen with a dual display system for team gatherings and presentations. This level also features a patio area for dining, games and relaxation.
