Spotify, a commercial music streaming service with a forward-thinking culture, wanted a space to reflect their flexible work style and attract and retain young talent, while drawing parallels to the design features from their Stockholm headquarters.
The FOX Architects team designed an open environment with the option of privacy to encourage collaboration and spontaneous interaction. Several “touch-down” areas with plush couches and colorful coffee tables were added throughout. To appeal to the young talent, accent walls were populated with artists’ interpretations of music. The distinctive designs were brought together through clean white walls and stained concrete floors throughout the space, as well as implementing common furniture elements.
Spotify’s new space is energizing and has helped to attract and retain new talent. It has provided a platform for artists and bands to perform, as well as a place to house town-hall-style meetings for staff.
