i.d.e.a.‘s headquarters on the top floor of 444 West Beech Street is nothing short of inspiring, creative, collaborative and happy. From the team that works there, to the bright colors, natural light and positive work environment, happiness just exudes from this workplace. It’s everything you would hope to see in the office of one of the most respected agencies in the country–let’s take a look inside!
When you walk into the space, you’re greeted by sleek polished concrete floors, a large white feature wall (with beautiful wood and white custom reception desk), comfortable living room-esque lounge chairs and a bike rack clad with beach cruisers!
The space features high, exposed ceilings painted bright white, adorned with long, modern pendant lights that bring warmth and brightness into the open areas.
Whiteboard walls and tack boards scatter the space, perfect for brainstorming as a team and adding fun imagery to the space via inspiration walls!
Offices are decorated with colorful rugs, residential style furniture and bright art that livens up the space. Checkerboard floors and bright green chairs make the break room an inviting place for team members to enjoy (that is, if they’re not exploring all the delicious Italian restaurants just a few blocks away!).
Congratulations to i.d.e.a. on such a masterful home for your team! We love it!
