Global software company Fieldglass wanted us to reflect the company’s personality in every inch of the space. The office design needed to represent a 'born cloud' company. Innovation is at the heart of Fieldglass and we wanted to deliver an office space that could support their ambitions.

With corporate headquarters in Chicago, we had to manage the partnership in a slightly different way. This posed a challenge to our team but for this project to be a success, our team ensured that they used a variety of different communication methods to keep the client updated with the latest developments.

The challenge was creating a convincing relationship between the building’s existing finishes and the contemporary, loft-style living our client wanted. The existing finishes were already strong and tactile, so we drew inspiration from the geometric shapes and used both natural and engineered materials like stone, steel, timber and glass. Meeting rooms became hexagonal with steel doors, wooden floors and floor-to-ceiling glass panes. These room designs, coupled with sections of exposed stone wall, gave the space a trendy industrial look with a Chicago loft-living edge.

Smart working spaces

To allow for future growth, we made the office layout versatile with bespoke furniture dotted between private, sound-proofed booths that our client could use for meetings. When designing the office space for Fieldglass, we wanted to create an uncomplicated and positive space with clean lines. By incorporating a smart working environment into their office, staff have more flexibility and freedom to work where they choose. A variety of seating areas, meeting rooms and private spaces are located throughout the spacious office. 

With a coffee machine at the centre of the office and personal storage units placed throughout the workplace, staff are fully equipped to work successfully in the smart working environment. By offering staff essential places to socialise with colleagues and store their belongings, the office becomes a place where staff can achieve success and be positive towards their work.
