A huge portion of our society spends significant amount of time within grey and boring office walls. There is a hope, however, that this might change a little bit over the next years. More and more companies recognize that the interior design elements and aesthetics of their offices have a huge impact on the mood and morale of their employees. These intelligent firms are truly committed to building a creative and inspiring workspace. They know the secret: only creative workspace can produce creative energy and eventually happy and loyal employees.
Today we are going to present a great example of careful and attentive office design. This is the Infinite Campus in Blaine, Minnesota that is the brand new corporate headquarters of an information management firm. The building combines the eco chic details, the latest materials and methods, all focused on maximizing the potentials of the employees working here. This 100,000 square foot office was designed by Finn Daniels Architects and features vast open work spaces, two-story oriental garden with crossing bridges, several training rooms, a central rotunda, and a full food service cafeteria.
Above all, the oriental garden is the creative centre of the building. Bamboo trees and other artificial trees comprise the defining vertical elements of the office landscape design. Commercial Silk International – the company responsible for the landscaping project – used Artificial Bonsai, Artificial Ancient Sequoia and Artificial Flowering Dogwood. They succeeded in bringing a splash of exoticism to a high-tech building. The carefully selected elements combined with green architecture concepts and aesthetics create a unique office atmosphere for both employees and clients.
We are sure that time flies much faster in such inspiring working environment. The Infinite Campus represents a nice mélange of sustainability, aesthetics and orientalism.
