MRZ - Workplace Culture Reflected Through Design

MiddletonRaines+Zapata (MRZ) has announced they are moving their headquarters into the 11th floor of Energy Tower IV on July 5, 2017.

"Working for MRZ was so unbelievably amazing! MRZ was engaged throughout the entire process and truly cared about how their unique culture would set the tone for the new workplace. PDR led discovery sessions with partners and employees which allowed MRZ to clearly define how their workplace could be a strategic tool for the evolution of the firm," says PDR’s Lead Designer Heather Wright on the process of designing the 26,000+ square foot space.

“The new space includes what has been dubbed the ‘MRZ Social Club,’ a space comprised of two games rooms, a kitchen, and a coffee bar styled after a contemporary coffee shop. The interior houses open door offices, with the exterior holding open concept workspaces that face the large windows of the building for maximum natural light. Focus rooms, collaboration spaces, and convertible standing desks round out a space created with employee productivity and comfort in mind,” states
