Sapient is a global services company that helps clients transform in the areas of business, marketing, and technology. The company operates three divisions that enable clients to gain a competitive advantage and succeed in an increasingly digital world. SapientNitro, Sapient Global Markets and Sapient Government Services fuse insight, creativity and technology to drive innovation and to help clients navigate complex business problems. 

The FOX design team opted to provide the young, tech-savvy company with a primarily open office environment to compliment the organizations’ collaborative nature. To further support the culture and the work of each division, FOX incorporated spontaneous interaction zones complete with black boards for increased collaboration. Additionally, white boards are woven into the layout of the back of the house and in individual meeting areas to further support team gatherings. Immediately adjacent to the pantry is a game room to provide an area for staff to unwind and relax.

The overall design was driven by the connectivity between the Government and Nitro/Global divisions. Woven into the design are unique branding elements such as the curved bands which run along the entire length of the common area space, thus connecting the different groups on both levels. Additional curved structures can be found in common areas further promoting the overall design concept.
