    Enel Green Power North America, Inc. (EGPNA)— the North American subsidiary of Enel, a multinational power company headquartered in Rome—previously housed staff on multiple floors and suites in their U.S. headquarters building. In order to bring everyone onto one floor, they relocated to a re-purposed wool mill building with nearby amenities. Through an executive visioning session and departmental interviews, IA learned that EGPNA wanted a clean, modern, and vibrant space that supports collaboration and socialization, as well as reflects their global diversity, company values, sustainability, innovation, and pride in what they do.

    Private offices were eliminated from their previous space types and all workstations were reduced to a 6×6 footprint, increasing space efficiency and allowing for a higher collaboration ratio. Neighborhoods are formed in the open office with built program elements and glass-enclosed rooms offer individual, small, and large conference meeting spaces, all with an integrated reservation system and connectivity. To encourage collaboration and socialization, a large, central café with branded graphics doubles as a lounge with gaming.

    The technology-forward space features AV wall displays with corporate messaging and a secure, but visible, government regulated control room for 24/7 observation and monitoring of their nearly 100 U.S. and Canadian power plants. A sustainable and modern aesthetic with European flair is achieved through reclaimed wood floors, walls, and ceiling features; a custom reception desk; and exposed ceilings showcasing the original mushroom columns of the wool mill. IA’s design for their new U.S. headquarters is the new design standard for Enel’s future offices worldwide.
