  • McCarthy Nordberg and in-house design team Brent Shetler and Meghan Freeney  have developed the new offices of Mindspace in Tempe, Arizona.

    Overlooking one of the busiest arteries connecting Scottsdale and Tempe, Mindspace’s office is situated above the hustle and bustle of the ASU campus. As a creative agency that focuses on creating unique employee and customer engagement solutions for their clients, creating an engaging workspace that is both unique and inspiring was an imperative.

    Completed in April 2015, the new workspace was designed to be a tangible reflection of Mindspace’s work-when-and-where-you’re-most-productive culture. Part coffee shop, part restaurant, part sports bar, part hotel lobby, part loft-living—the space provides a wide range of flexible spaces, environments and seating options that support all types of work styles and personalities.

    Need to focus? Claim one of five individually-themed breakout spaces designed for single occupants or up to five for a quick chat, conference call or brainstorming session. Want to be part of the action? Post up in a booth or belly up to the 21’ x 5’ communal bartop in the center of the office. Collaborative brainstorming? Hit the whiteboard room with floor-to-ceiling writeable walls. Want to clear your head? Patio bar seating with views of Camelback mountain provides the perfect setting.

    Rich textures and non-commercial furnishings and lighting create a warm, visually-stimulating alternative to the traditional office setting. With no assigned personal offices or seating, employees and clients alike are encouraged to sit where they’re most comfortable and most productive—often moving to multiple spaces throughout the day.The only rule? Don’t sit in the same spot for more than two consecutive days.
