Copperleaf is a great example of translating the brand, culture, values, and community of a company into the physical office in order to promote an emotional connection with the core values and for staff to take pride in the company that they work for and the great work that they do. Following an industrial and rustic design framework, the visual aesthetic of this 10,300 SF office was balanced with warm wood tones and modern line work, with an emphasis on contrast and a variety of material types. The large metal cut graphic behind the reception desk functions as an exact translation of the Copperleaf brand identity.
A Vancouver-based company that provides infrastructure asset management software for the energy and industrial sectors, Copperleaf Technologies had outgrown their office and decided to relocate to a new space that could accommodate their rapidly expanding team.
It was paramount that the staff was engaged in the design, and through several workplace strategy tools, workshops, and visioning, the team was able to truly understand the intricacies of what was required to make this workplace successful. Through research into their work and the businesses that make up their client base, the design team uncovered a common theme: connection points. The design solution was pushed to a level that was unique, unexpected, and directly associated with their business drivers. Employees and guests get the full experience of what Copperleaf is all about while getting a sense of pride and ownership from the moment they walk in the door.
