A Flexible, Modern Headquarters with Fresh Branding to Match

For their new headquarters on the top floor of the newly built 5050 S. Syracuse building in the Denver Tech Center, YES Communities, a driving force behind affordable manufactured housing communities throughout the country, sought a flexible design that would reflect and support their culture while reinforcing their recently refreshed branding.

Throughout the design, we incorporated subtle nods to the company’s core business – from ceiling baffles reminiscent of the pitch of a residential roof to a collaboration area anchored by a sculptural tree, complete with swings, that evokes one of the company’s neighborhood playgrounds.

The result is an engaging and inspiring environment that communicates the YES Communities values while providing them with the functionality and flexibility they need to continue to grow.

HARNESSING THE TRANSFORMATIVE POTENTIAL OF ADAPTIVE REUSE

For this award-winning project, we collaborated with Hyder Construction to transform a dilapidated old warehouse in Denver into a new headquarters for their team. Together, we collaborated on a design that supports their culture, celebrates their craft and preserves the unique sense of place that comes with working in a historic building.

A large open stair creates connection and promotes circulation through the building, positioned with the best view to connect employees to nature and encourage use throughout the day. To maintain a sense of character and place, we kept a number of rugged mainstays original to the building, such as the exposed brick and ghost signs from legacy businesses that told a story of industry that resonated strongly with Hyder’s culture.

New and historic construction techniques were brought to the forefront throughout the design, subtly reinforcing Hyder’s trade. All of these diverse elements were pulled together with a cohesive color palette, finishes, a unique soffit detail and decorative light fixtures throughout the space. The resulting design was recognized with the 2019 Mayor’s Design Award in the “Back to the Future” category and was a 2019 finalist for Engineering News Record’s Project of the Year for the Western Region.

Corporate Headquarters

CREATING A HEADQUARTERS FOR PEOPLE AND PUPS ALIKE

As North America’s largest and fastest-growing pet care franchise, Camp Bow Wow needed a new headquarters that would accommodate growth, reflect their fun-loving brand, and be a safe, enjoyable environment for both employees and their furry friends.

The Elsy team worked closely with Camp Bow Wow’s branding team to effectively embody their brand in every detail of the space. The floor plan and furniture layout strategically provide ample space in each cubicle for dogs to walk around. There are even rooms for playtime with concrete floors (for easy clean-up) and gates on each end (for clear sightlines).

Flooring selection was a unique consideration in this space, given the inevitable heavy foot (and paw) traffic. It needed to be durable as well as cost-effective to replace. Reflecting the company’s ‘camp-feel’, the Elsy team brought the outside in with an organic-patterned plank carpet tile and accent green grass-like carpet tiles that blended open areas and closed offices. In the breakroom, the walls feature snack dispensers for employees, stocked with tasty human treats as well as dog treats in several flavors. Open collaborative areas throughout the space feature a variety of lounge furniture and writeable surfaces such as chalkboards and whiteboards.

OPTIMIZING DESIGN TO CREATE A BIG IMPACT ON A BUDGET

A small budget does not have to equal a small design impact; it just means you have to be creative and selective. That is exactly what Elsy Studios did when we were hired by Miles Marketing to design their new office space.

Miles Marketing focuses exclusively on travel and tourism marketing. They wanted a space that reflected their fun culture and love of travel. New sit-to-stand workstations were grouped in quadrants divided by a variety of conference rooms and open huddle spaces, allowing employees to easily find a place for quick collaboration, or more formal spaces for longer, focused meetings. Custom travel-inspired graphics are visible throughout the space, creating a vibrant backdrop and reinforcing the client’s branding.

The large break room can be opened up completely to the main conference room, providing an opportunity for all 80 employees to sit in one room for the monthly all-hands staff meetings. With their energetic new space, the Miles Marketing team and culture are thriving.

STRENGTHENING PRODUCTIVITY IN COLLABORATIVE CORPORATE ENVIRONMENT

Well-established in the Denver Tech Center, this corporate law firm was looking to create a more collaborative environment for employees in a new office space. Through multiple test fit space planning exercises, Elsy worked closely with Pollart & Miller to find the right fit in the newly remodeled office building next door at 5700 S. Quebec St. in Denver.

Given the confidential nature of the firm’s work, careful consideration was given to designing the meeting areas for acoustical privacy and meaningful circulation patterns. To ensure the space still feels welcoming and collaborative, the centralized break room draws employees in to recharge throughout the day. Highlights in this space include large light fixtures that resemble sky lights, and boldly patterned banquette seating contrasted against energizing bursts of color. This welcoming area has become the social hub of the office, supporting a stronger culture within the firm.

COMMUNICATING UNLIMITED POSSIBILITIES IN A CONSOLIDATED HQ

This project represented a significant cultural shift for Workplace Resource, combining their sales and warehouse functions in a new facility and completely redesigning how they serviced their clients and worked together as a team.

Adding a challenge for the design team, as an office furniture dealership, Workplace Resource’s new headquarters had to be flexible enough to demonstrate an ever-changing array of visually appealing concepts, while still functioning as an office.

To that end, Elsy created a flexible design that allows Workplace Resource to shift furniture in and out as needed.

LED lighting was installed liberally and creatively to warm up the space without tying the client to a particular furniture arrangement. Minimal colors and classic wood tones were selected to provide a timeless backdrop. The result is a compelling and beautiful design solution that provides a world-class work environment for Workplace Resource’s team members.

The project was so successful that in 2015, that it was featured on the cover of Modern in Denver Magazine.

BRINGING THE OUTDOORS IN FOR AN APPROACHABLE AND DYNAMIC WORKPLACE

Designing for designers is the ultimate test for a firm. When Design Workshop, a landscape architecture, planning and urban design firm, moved their office to the first floor of their building, Elsy Studios set out to bring curb appeal to this unique space.

Through a combination of unexpected elements, organic and angular, we mimicked elements you might find in a park or urban development, giving the space a distinctive character that reflects Design Workshop’s craft. A large collaborative area was created front and center, featuring a spacious quartz countertop and pin-up board, which draws focus to the firm’s design process. Brick walls and wood floors were restored to their former glory, and a fun, fresh color pallette was selected to match the approachable attitude of the company.

With close collaboration, the result was an innovative inspiring space the company can thrive in.

Non-Traditional Design for a Denver Law Firm

When Merchant & Gould moved their Denver offices to the 33rd floor of the revitalized 1801 California Street building, they sought to revitalize their space with new furniture and warm decorative tones that exuded their fun, but hardworking culture.

While many law firms choose to line every window with private offices, Merchant & Gould was committed to fostering greater collaboration with an open plan. Elsy achieved the desired effect with a three-dimensional space plan that recognized the need for private offices while exploring a number of new, creative options for defining public space. Cohesive design details in the modern and inviting reception area that doubles as a ‘public living room,’ natural walnut custom doors, statement LED lighting, decorative ceiling screens, as well as embellished hardware, tile, and fabric provide a modern twist to the traditional law firm aesthetic and keep the space light and bright. The result is elegant with an edge, efficient yet different, and creative without ever being over the top.
