Pokemon

June | Pokemon

Pokémon’s vision for the 3rd floor renovation was derived from the concept of the “third space”, to create an amenity space for their employees to use to interact in groups, for all-hands meetings, interviews, or for quiet individual getaways from their workspace on the upper floors. Inspiration was taken from nature, Amazon’s spheres, patios, yoga, and café culture. Wood post and beam-looking construction with sliding panels divide break-out spaces and Pikachu greets visitors. ID+ 3.5" Square Downlights adorn wood ceilings, Focus Wall Wash highlights a custom mural, and Seem 1 Acoustic lit and unlit ensures the large multi-purpose room is a comfortable space for all users.

Western Union

March | Western Union

This month features Western Union. Western Union has an illustrious heritage of innovation, starting in 1851 with a telegraph line connecting Buffalo to St. Louis and continuing a decade later with the debut of a transcontinental telegraph. Today, Western Union is the leading company for sending and receiving money internationally and its new headquarters had to reflect that leadership and innovative spirit.
Connectivity was the primary idea behind the design concept with the goal to break down the previous silos of enclosed offices to connect the 1,300 employees of the Denver location. Gensler also wanted to connect them to the places where Western Unions does business, worldwide. Community hubs, based on regions where the company has a significant presence, entice employees to experience spaces outside of their assigned locations. This global tour of destination amenities, spread over eight floors, is brought to light with ID+ 3.5" Downlights and a variety of Seem luminaires.
