Akamai’s network is one of the world’s largest distributed-computing platforms, responsible for serving between 15 and 20 percent of all web traffic.
Having previously collaborated on the design of the Akamai Sydney office in Australia, Unispace were asked to design the new headquarters of Akamai France, located in the heart of Paris.
The Paris workplace features a selection of spaces for staff to choose from, purposefully designed to reflect different workstyle requirements. The centrepiece of the office is a large breakout pantry area with a fabric-wrapped folding wall. This opens into a high-tech training facility, allowing over 60 viewers to benefit from video-conferencing via 75” LED displays.
Alongside these immersive work zones, playful environmental graphics have been applied across multiple surfaces taking cue from the Akamai branding. These include acoustic room dividers, colour selection for walls, flooring tiles and FF&E selections.
The Akamai team were integral in developing the vision for the new space and to the overall success of the project.
