Pinnacle Solutions is a tech company that helps clients convert data into structured information. Due to their rapid growth, they desired an office space that fosters a collaborative environment critical to their culture, while maintaining the flexibility for their future growth needs. The new space not only had to be efficient, but also unique, fresh, and relevant to their tech culture. This forward-thinking, innovative space was designed to inspire creativity and connectivity, both internally and with the downtown neighborhood. A casual, community-focused atmosphere is evident from the first-floor collaborative café-lounge and the benching stations in the second-floor open office. Fully glazed office fronts that provide transparency and access to natural light were a welcome change from the building’s previous compartmentalized layout; the open concept allows for views of the surrounding area, including the Julia Carson Transit Center and the Cultural Trail. Many original architectural elements such as historical decorative columns and solid timber beams were uncovered during demolition. These hidden gems were left exposed and became focal points in the design, adding a unique touch.
