GlobeSt.com: How do you design for technology you can’t predict?
Zemlicka: Flexibility. We try to make the space as adaptable as possible; the more built-in features that revolve around current technology, the faster the space will be antiquated. Think phone booths and built-in display monitors for TVs that are 10 years old.
GlobeSt.com: Were there challenges that arose throughout the process that impacted the design?
Zemlicka: Not really because TEECOM had such a clear vision of the space. It was always part of the design plans from the start.
