Reztark | Office

2019 Winner – Interior Architecture

Project Narrative

WANTED: A new home for a creative, passionate team of designers. After many dead ends, we found a new home. The building was a shamble, requiring vision and perspective. A concrete three-story building built in 1920 for a bank provided 10,000 sf of character, high ceilings, sunlight and a clear span floor with no columns - OUR Studio!
The concept was created by the entire staff reflecting our culture: “Anything but Ordinary!” Be Bold, be passionate, have fun, be collaborative, be honest, communicate. We are determined to go beyond the status quo and our space reflects our vision of design.
The space embodies Reztark’s determination to go beyond the status quo with sit-stand desks for all employees, multiple break out work zones, 1/3rd of the space allocated to amenities such as an innovation lab, quiet zones and a spacious work café. Our office is all about collaboration and communication, so the team needed to be on one floor with full site lines to one another.
The design is fun and inspirational, having a visual component communicating OUR culture. Developed in response to staff desires to make it comfortable, with loosely defined spaces that promote creativity, and passion to develop amazing design with a positive attitude.
Keep it simple, be nimble and to adapt to the ever-changing workplace.
