2019 REX AWARDS RECIPIENT FOR:
OFFICE DEVELOPMENT OF THE YEAR
Size: 160,000 sq. ft.
Location: 11063 14th Street NE
Hexagon was very mindful in their design and entire process, they knew exactly what they wanted but weren’t sure on what it actually looked like. They wanted to encourage a more social and connective culture. They wanted to promote equality. They believe design matters, that a great environment matters and that pride matters.
Technical: A predominantly strong technical portion and electrical design consisting of hardware labs, software labs and servers required solid interaction between the designers, the developer and Hexagon. For high security, vendor stations and amenities were strategically planned for access with only the first level of security.
Human: The huge staff café was designed for more interactive culture in the office as the facility can hold around 600 staff. Wellbeing is promoted by offering a gym and bike storage, along with change facilities and lockers to encourage healthy living. Designers integrated user application images that reflect what is important to the employees, such as mountain scenery in the elevators to simulate the natural environment.
“I must say you did an awesome job with the interior design. Well done!!!”
