Highland was commissioned to create a dynamic new office space for the east coast headquarters of the international market research firm IPSOS Reid. When the project began, there were only 5 staff members, and a key feature of the design was to attract potential job candidates.
Highland had to anticipate the future needs of a possible 50 person staff. A centralized "cafe" area adjacent to the cafeteria was created that could be utilized as a central circulation element and also for informal meetings and chance encounters. The spectacular views were highlighted by having a mix of exterior and interior offices allowing all employees to share the views and natural light.
