Placentia CA, USA
One of the world’s most experienced cast vinyl film manufacturers, Arlon approached us to design and deliver new headquarters that showcase their position as a leading graphics company while unlocking the potential of their build environment.
Arlon’s former workplace, defined by high cubicles, perimeter offices and insufficient meeting spaces that hindered collaboration, seemed deserted even at peak occupancy. Their move to Placentia prompted the company to redefine their brand identity as a contemporary graphics firm.
Our designers seized on the company’s re-branding to transform not just the physical environment but the very way in which staff works. Open plan workstations, accessible meeting areas positioned around a collaborative bench layout and a vibrant cafe now foster the rapid exchange of ideas amongst Arlon’s evolving workforce. Increasing workstation efficiency also allowed our designers to allocate found space for stand-up collaboration zones and layout tables.
We’re sensitive to the impact of such a transformational shift in the work environment. Our team led a successful change management campaign that allowed us to alleviate concerns and demonstrate how this new workplace would affect office culture for the better. Employees are now engaged and empowered to work, learn and collaborate.
