Gensler is a global design firm that works in over 100 countries with almost 2,500 clients, and their Atlanta offices are a model of the good design that they seek to foster in an amazing range of client work. Here are some of the things that make the Gensler designs great Atlanta office space.
- Outdoor space to work or relax. Despite being located midway up an Atlanta skyscraper, they have found a way to work outdoor space into their offices. Complete with Astroturf and stylish teak furniture, the “sky terraces” make a comfortable location to work in the midst of a busy Midtown location.
- Sunny social space. Dubbed the Tea Room, this break space has colorful chairs and a fun designer lamp, along with a television built into the wall alongside the fridge and other storage amenities.
- Few enclosed, and bright, offices. There are only four enclosed offices in the entire 22,000 square feet, and they are lined with glass to make it easy to see if someone is available.
- Glass-enclosed team rooms. Meeting spaces are glass-lined, keeping noise in but allowing light to flow easily around the entire office space. Workstations with bright, upholstered visitors’ stools, are broken into smaller “neighborhoods” by these team spaces.
- Well-lighted project rooms. These smaller spaces are lined with walls which can support idea boards and are firm enough for writing and drawing as projects develop.
- Expandable conference room. This room can be separated into smaller meeting spaces with easily-movable glass (of course) walls, allowing light to flow through while muffling sound.
- A sense of place. The elevator lobby is decorated with reclaimed pine boards, showcasing the LEED nature of much of Gensler’s building design work. The reception area is designed to resemble the lobby of a boutique hotel, providing an inviting place in which to relax.
