The architect says the building was redeveloped to meet the needs of young professionals, who are commonly looking for older character buildings that cater to modern technology requirements, and have additional amenities this building features a fitness centre, entertainment deck and bar.
"This office also reflects a growing trend in office design, whereby personal space is shrinking and shared space is growing."
Interior designer Cindy Howery of Potter Lawson, who was commissioned to design the interior for Kimberly Clark, says the office epitomises this new workplace model.
"This is social media research in action," Howery says. "It is more about working in cafes than cubicles, and using laptops, tablets and phones.
"The team wanted to walk the talk with an office that reflected the way they worked. This was never going to be a typical corporate workplace."
In keeping with this design brief, the entire office is open and transparent. Demountable Muraflex glass walls provide acoustic privacy for meeting areas but ensure visual connections remain.
Staff are encouraged to use the entire office, not just the workstations. No-one is assigned a particular desk; workers log in each morning and work wherever they need to be. This may be at a collaborative table, workstation or in one of the many breakout areas, which include an area with a green carpet and picnic table. Sun loungers and a kitchen island with bar stools are other options.
