When it comes to fusing one high-powered, cutting edge software company and an outdated, misused building, there is nothing a little demo, paint and a whole lot of imagination can’t fix. By the time the ink was dry on the lease, this prominent company with a big personality wanted a slick, fast moving, innovative space that was both client facing and inspiring. Did I mention they wanted it now!
These guys worked hard and played harder and needed a space to do both with just the right panache. Out went the sheet rock and mauve tiles. In went the custom-painted silver baby grand piano and three pool tables. The red brick walls and concrete floor got to stay with a little polish, stain and varnish. Today, the space hosts several gaming stations, a two-story living room, an Internal Training Facility, Omniture University, a Network Operations Center (that looks as high tech as it sounds), a mother’s lounge, a music lounge, glass-walled conference rooms, offices and cubicles laid on angles.
