The Ghafari team conducted multiple programming and planning sessions with Varnum’s stakeholders to understand the culture, identify underutilized space, and plan for the future needs of their unique workforce. The result is an inviting space that takes advantage of natural light by opening up the spine of the building through each floor plate.
The entire office received refreshed lighting, refinished walls and flooring, and updated restrooms. Nine teaming rooms were added to the office along with more social amenities, including a putting green, shuffleboard table, café, and gathering spaces. The entire office received technological upgrades to easily transition from in-office to remote work and offer continuity between their other offices.
