Philips Emergin

Boca Raton, Florida

This is a 19,300 square foot office space for a software engineering and service group.  The design of the space was developed around the concept of an open flexible collaborative environment.  Open office workstations are grouped in neighborhoods surrounded by a variety of support spaces, such as meeting rooms, labs and private phone rooms.  The support areas are equipped with AV systems and dry erase boards.  These neighborhoods also surround a central building core area.  The support areas are used to provide a buffer between the open office areas and are also positioned in such a way as to allow natural daylight to enter deep into the space.

This use of a wireless network and laptops is an important feature that allows employees to seamlessly move from an individual workstation to a collaborative room for brainstorming and problem solving.
