As a tech-driven financial services company that values collaboration and innovation, Fiserv. engaged the design team to help them renovate a 65,000 sf facility and realize their vision to live their brand values daily and plan for sustainable growth by supporting the mobility of their associates. Project highlights include a new lobby and stair, client presentation rooms, pre-function area, fitness facility, collaborative areas, work café, and integrated corporate branding. Drawing from the company’s recently-completed hub in Alpharetta, GA, Fiserv. Beaverton desired the same design quality and amenities, with a nod to the local northwestern culture through the use of materials.
Design ChallengeThe design team delivered a workspace that gives employees the choice to work in a variety of settings where employees with different work needs can all find a productive space to get things done.
Though the conditions of renovating an older building posed its challenges, the space ultimately provided unique design opportunities such as the wood structure. Exposing the character of the building by showcasing the wood structure is juxtaposed with seamless integrations of a/v and technology, which provides a smart, intuitive environment for employees and an impressive experience for guests.
Highlighting the company’s collaborative culture, a variety of collaboration opportunities adjacent to the workstations were incorporated throughout. Seeking to showcase its unique corporate identity, the reimagined lobby creates a branded, open environment that leads into a client presentation space. Designed with the employee and client experience in mind, a large work café provides different work environments that support a variety of work styles.
Physical ContextLocally sourced materials common to the northwest region appear throughout the space, such as cedar in the lobby. Additionally, the building in its original state lacked natural light, so it was critical to add glass garage doors to key social spaces to encourage use and democratize daylight throughout.
