Bull Stockwell Allen’s concept for Arena Solution’s new workplace in Foster City answers the client’s need for a fun, functional, branded, open-office work environment. The layout facilitates communication and teamwork while balancing the different work styles of each department and individual. A key element of the design is the flexible ‘Town Square.’ The Square houses Arena’s kitchen/breakroom and can be divided to create a separate room for on-site training. Divisible walls coupled with glass garage doors that open onto reception, allow for ample space for ‘all-hands’ meetings and company events. The program also includes a quiet ‘Hive’ area for sales or personal calls, lounge areas, hoteling stations, small breakout rooms, meeting rooms and a large Board Room.
