    As a global leader in IT security, Trend Micro develops innovative security solutions for businesses and consumers to exchange digital information. Perkins+Will has guided the transformation of the company’s workplace strategy effort which has led to a long-standing relationship and several projects.

    Trend Micro enlisted Perkins+Will’s help to complete an adaptive re-use of their Dallas headquarters, a space Perkins+Will previously designed for an another client. The evolution of the workplace began with high panel workstations, which gradually migrated to a smaller footprint based on benching. In 2015, Perkins+Will and Omniplan began work on the Trend Micro San Jose office. Throughout the transformation, the team has worked with the Trend to create a model that now includes amenities spaces such as break rooms, cafes, and game rooms and customer-facing spaces like executive briefing centers. Huddle rooms, small meeting rooms, and large meeting rooms foster collaboration and have become standard in every office location.

    The design includes industrial elements and open-to-deck ceilings, punctuated by wood floors, stone accents, and warm colors. The Trend Micro logo is backlit and inserted into the stone reception desk representative of the company’s branding. The palette is repeated in each office to establish a connectedness between locations.

    Trend Micro takes pride in establishing a well-built environment with materials that connect to their rich heritage. Throughout every project, decision makers have been consistently engaged in creating a space that empowers their staff and continually improves the workplace standards.
