After studying its internal culture, CBRE engaged Elkus Manfredi Architects to align its Financial District office space with its team-oriented, collaborative culture. All design decisions were made based on how employees work, striking a balance among all spaces - open, private, formal, and informal. Circulation areas add to the opportunities for people to connect, while conference rooms are tucked away for privacy. Workspaces are arranged based on business synergies and offer varied seating options to accommodate different tasks, creating spaces that foster productivity and teamwork.
