The plan is informed by firm culture, work processes, & corporate structure (i.e. a separate area for a corporate subsidiary). Culture & work processes call for collaborative team areas, individual head-down focused work spaces and flexible common areas. Employees are provided with a series of collaborative “huddle” spaces—both open and enclosed—that support team activities and individual tasks. A kitchenette/bar provides a major gathering spot where creativity flows and a culture is built. The design begins with a central wood plank tunnel, orienting one immediately upon stepping off the elevator: turn to the right and pass through a bright green wrapper. One end of the tunnel terminates with and encloses the primary pitch room. The other terminates at the original dedication plaque from when the floor housed the Cincinnati Playboy Club. The white/grey material & color palette is intentionally restrained allowing the firm's work & extensive collection of rock-show posters & subversive art prints to take center stage. Large expanses of glass allow for a high degree of transparency & connectivity between internal spaces. Conference & huddle spaces are defined by orange carpeting. A soffit reduces the scale between the two work areas (height to structure ranges from 14’-17’). Nested below the soffit is a black wall that contains the majority of the conferencing spaces. The black wall has been a canvas for dozens of artists since the space opened.
