This office expansion into a 4,000 SF space used existing brand elements to enhance office liveliness. A new all hands area that accommodates more than 70 people brings the back of the house forward. Design features include private phone booths, conference rooms named after legendary engineers, a shower for bicycle commuters, and other distinct amenities.
With the addition of an R&D lab, FORGE collaborated with TEECOM to design a maker space with systems and security managed by a proprietary A.I. system, aptly named FIERA (fully integrated electronic room asst.). The lab opens directly to the workspaces with a garage door entry/exit, providing a smart space for engineers to test the limits of new technologies.
