    iZotope is an award winning developer of audio technology whose products bolster the creative efforts of composers and producers in studios across the world. Its staff is comprised of musicians, software developers, and entrepreneurs, all of them craft whiskey aficionados.

    Unispace brought its proprietary methodology to bear from lease negotiations through delivery to lead an agile, collaborative process that responded to unique budgetary and construction challenges.

    iZotope relied on Unispace’s expertise from the onset of lease negotiations when precise, carefully detailed test fits and an exacting budget facilitated a rapid response to the deal terms. Unispace worked in conjunction with the client’s real estate team to ensure that iZotope was not liable for base-building scope.

    Unispace led a tactile visioning process that directly engaged over 100 employees to develop a design that supports the company’s culture. Styled “Craftsmen and Connoisseurs,” the design vision emphasizes the importance of authenticity, precision, and meticulous details found in herringbone tiles, custom barn doors built from reclaimed wood, and artfully restored brickwork.

    Our multi-disciplinary approach allowed the design team to work hand in hand with trades to explore material options, construction methods, and site limitations in real time with current pricing. Together, designers and construction professionals identified and eliminated unnecessary expenditures while improving upon function and design quality to ensure timely project delivery. The resulting workplace inspires, supports rapid growth, and communicates iZotope’s persona.
