GBD completed a 19,000 sq. foot, full floor tenant improvement for Survey Monkey in February 2013. Located on the 16th floor of the US Bancorp Tower, the tenant’s program required large open spaces that encouraged creativity and collaboration.
Designers planned the open office configuration facing east, providing the majority of staff views of the Willamette River and Mount Hood. Additionally, we included informal seating groups (for meetings or just relaxing) throughout the office. We removed the traditional ceiling grid and exposed the structure above to create a more open, raw feel; and painted the exposed ceiling white to reflect more natural light while brightening the interior.
The client desired a fun space that encouraged interaction and an active lifestyle. To that end, we provided a large break area with table tennis, video games, and a custom cappuccino bar. We included ample space for bicycle storage, showers and lockers for commuters. Finally, we used the company’s bright branding colors to accent space.
