    After years of continued growth, Xenia was looking for a new space that enhances the way they can work, and better supports their company culture and mission as a REIT focused solely on a Hospitality portfolio.

    Organized around the concept of “50 steps,” the design is informed by the diverse experiences available in resort and hospitality projects, where each new destination is just steps away. At Xenia, employees can easily move between offices, work bullpens, conference rooms, collaboration zones, and break rooms in 50 steps or less. Many of these destinations express as dynamic disruptions within the thoughtful and sophisticated workplace environment. Branding and storytelling become breadcrumbs along the 50 steps between the key moments that express Xenia’s story.

    A multi-purpose conference room shares space with an open lounge and café that blends into the reception. Supporting a number of different work modes, this flexible area can be converted from a main lobby, to a conference room, to a collaboration zone with custom mobile furniture. Company labs, or “Co.Lab” areas, are conveniently placed near workstations that give employees another setting to collaborate.

    To maximize the budget, special emphasis was placed on the high impact amenity spaces. A warm entry lends to the dramatic hospitality feel of the space with elements that hint at boutique hotel. Micro-offices measuring 70 square feet allow for focus work and allow more room for team work areas. Workstations arranged to form work studios are equipped with easily configurable furniture to support flexible individual and team work styles.
