When HLGstudio expanded into new space , our primary goal was to design an organic microcosm of our firm's principles and philosophy.
As designers and thought leaders we wanted to be welcomed every day into a space that was open, expansive, and playful. We needed spaces that would spark creativity for both large teams and small groups. The results have been stellar—a great majority of our walls are white boards that are visible to every person who may pass by, visual invitations for shared comments and critiques. Break out areas for conversation and informal meetings are designed everywhere—different seating heights in the library allow casual get-togethers, an outdoor patio encourages fresh air breaks, and, as always, food service and relaxation areas attract lively conversation and spirited celebrations.
Our new offices are highly agile idea laboratories. We are a true studio environment—integrating ideas in a non-hierarchical space, promoting freedom of expression, imagination, knowledge, mentorship, communication and passion.
