The final design for Informatica’s Austin office fosters positive culture building, elevated efficiency and more in-depth problem-solving. The office has become a benchmark for the organization, leading to the implementation of the lessons learned into the complete renovation of Informatica’s Headquarters in Redwood City, CA.
Working with a narrow building footprint the open workspace needed to maintain high flexibility to accommodate the everchanging team sizes as well as anticipated future expansion. A “neighborhood” approach, including diagonal desk orientation, acoustic screens, huddle furniture and strategically designed circulation, creates a sense of intimacy and privacy for staff. Brightly colored felt and wood dividers with cutouts allow for privacy and establish secondary circulation, while also allowing staff to quickly see room availability for efficient impromptu huddles.
