In 2010 STUDIOS was selected to provide a long-term planning and design solution for NeighborWorks America in Washington, DC. STUDIOS first task was the development of a strategic programming document to outline the client’s real estate needs for the next 10+ years. This program established the criteria for a space study and search effort in the Washington, DC market for a suitable headquarters re-location. The project coincided with a new workplace paradigm for NeighborWorks, and a new brand. The space is organized with flexible, highly collaborative office space with opportunities for casual meeting and formal conference facilities. The design concept created is organized around a “main street” to promote openness, accessibility and fosters communication and creative exchange of ideas. Additional design considerations included strong sustainability strategies, significant daylighting, and plans for future growth.
