Architecture and design firm Vocon became their own client when they recently redesigned their headquarters in the heart of Cleveland. The company has called the 15,000-square-foot, two-story building home since 2005, but have grown to employee over 180 people. The massive growth required a renovation to accommodate everyone within a flexible, more open workspace, so they took the opportunity to take their offices in a completely new direction.
The ground floor welcomes guests and employees with a reception area and lounge, while acting as the building’s activity center. The upstairs houses a large cafe and workspace section, along with conference rooms and various spots to work.
‘Crush it Every Day’ is displayed on a vertical wall of fresh, green moss for inspiration, reflecting on the company’s ethos.
The use of color and playful elements, like a collection of PEZ dispensers and a Brady Bunch-like display wall of employee photos, keep the atmosphere energetic and inspiring.
Natural light was an important element in the new design to encourage wellness.
There’s a state-of-the-art virtual reality room that allows the company to show clients visuals of their projects.
