Now located in downtown’s prominent Connecticut Financial Center, the Technolutions headquarters relocated from the nearby Gold Building in a move that allowed the company – founded in 1994 by entrepreneur and philanthropist, Alexander Clark – to consolidate its operations from three separate floors to a spacious and vibrant 21,000-square-foot layout on the 22nd floor. Svigals + Partners’ design of the floor plan and the palette of furniture and finishes served as a model for the company’s Portland office expansion, where Technolutions was planning to expand from a partial floor to occupy the full 16,000-square-foot plate.
“Bringing this unique vision to life – not in one office, but in two simultaneously – was an exciting challenge,” says Katherine Berger, NCIDQ, WELL AP, Svigals + Partners’ associate and director of interior design. “It was important to establish a visual connection between the two workplaces, so that while separated by a continent, each presents a unified and coherent image of the Technolutions brand to employees and visitors, with a consistent and coherent experience between them.”
“Now the offices not only share the same designs, but most importantly, they have a similar sense of freedom, possibility and exceptional service,” adds Berger.
Anchoring both environments is a blue glass-enclosed room used for conferencing and frequent team meetings, surrounded by 40 workstations, call rooms, casual gathering areas, and a breakroom with drop-down projection screens and cameras that capture the entire room for virtual company-wide meetings. Strategically installed speakers and projectors allow for full audiovisual access in all the office and meeting zones. The experiential lobby presents immediate step-off-the-elevator
