Collaborative Belgium Connection
- PDR Service Design + Architecture
- Industry Sector Technology
- Office Houston
- Project Goal Collaboration
Solvay, a Belgian-based global chemical company, asked PDR to help reinvent their workplace to reflect current work styles. Newly co-located business support groups at the Houston office needed a space that would foster connectivity, collaboration and knowledge-sharing.
PDR approached the project with that objective and an awareness of the company’s European origins in mind. The new office is located on two adjacent floors of a high-rise building. A new monumental staircase greets visitors, integrates the workplace design together with the brand and promotes fluid circulation and connectivity among employees.
The project delivers an atmosphere that embodies Solvay’s corporate identity, industry expertise, and collaborative culture. Subtle cues from Solvay’s chemical roots are a nod to the company’s history. Color theory, texture, and scale are used as design elements to communicate a progressive company image. Additionally, celebrated historical images of the company are showcased in large wall graphics to connect employees with the company’s past.
