    Bazaarvoice connects brands and retailers to the voices of their customers. With more than 700 million people sharing their reviews on tens of millions of products, Bazaarvoice’s users and their employees make up a diverse network of people.

    To emphasize this multi-faceted network, Perkins+Will designed the new Austin headquarters, emphasizing unique architectural features and use of branded color, a nod to Bazaarvoice energy and culture. The space features 14 open collaboration areas, each paired with unique patterned carpet, wallcoverings, and light fixtures representative of each department.

    The café and break room reveal faceted pods, painted using the Bazaarvoice, Grass, Navy, Sky, and Teal. An IT Help Desk is comprised of a custom wood ceiling trellis, wood planks mounted on the wall, and a help desk made of hot rolled steel. The space encompasses a vibrant Austin vibe and comfortable open concept environment, which features cafe seating and collaboration space. As an employee amenity, Bazaarvoice created/retained Whole Foods Market as an on- site caterer and created a branded Whole Foods cafe.

    Perkins+Will provided architectural, interior design, furniture, and graphics/signage services.
