Fortune 100 Oil & Gas Company – Building Two
Flexing from Horizontal to Vertical
The client’s workplace relocated from their 30-year-old campus, into two first-generation office buildings. Building Two serves as the Global Headquarters and includes collaboration areas, conference rooms, executive offices, a cafe, fitness center, trade floor, dental and medical clinic, and two credit union spaces.
PDR worked with the organization to define a vision for their future workplace and minimize the hierarchical structures. We created a flexible work environment that fosters knowledge sharing and innovation. The concepts reflect the business foundation: exploration and discovery. The design combines timeless architecture with flexible planning methods and purposeful technology.
One of Building 2’s main purpose was to focus on employee well-being. One way that is accomplished is through the Wellness Center. The client values employee health, therefore, the space offers luxurious locker rooms, a weight room, a serene massage room, and studio rooms. This space is a health retreat for workers to rejuvenate so they can fulfill their best work.
