NELSON Worldwide recently designed Austrian software testing company Tricentis’ offices at Monarch Tower in Atlanta, Georgia. The firm assisted in the company’s relocation to a 21,000-square-foot space where their growing staff could feel empowered to produce their best work. After outgrowing their previous office, which was split on two non-adjoining floors, Tricentis sought a collaborative workplace environment that fostered employee creativity and productivity.
Spread across approximately 21,000 square feet, the new office accommodates all departments within a single floor with inboard private offices, open work station areas, open collaborative spaces, private collaborative spaces, conference rooms, and a large multifunctioning room, which adjoins the break room to allow for town hall spaces.
NELSON Worldwide worked closely with the company and utilized employee feedback in order to provide them with a more efficient and inviting workplace that could support their highly collaborative work style. This helped the design team better visualize the day-to-day needs of each employee and informed the distribution of workstations and amenities across a single level.
The resulting space features a bright and bold color palette of oranges, yellows, and blues, while honoring the original grayscale color scheme of the building. The floor features a deep gray exposed ceiling for a raw and modern industrial feel.
To make Austrian tech company’s new home feel warm and inviting, the design team juxtaposed vivid tones with wooden paneling along the perimeter walls. Televisions, plush lounge couches, and eclectic seating options have also been woven into the design to add a sense of playfulness that helps employees take a break from work during the day. To maximize the use of natural sunlight, the NELSON team took advantage of the large windows, exposing views of the Buckhead landscape, while strategically installing additional LED fixtures to further illuminate the space.
