    MakeOffices is a growing company specializing in coworking space, both collaborative and virtual, for freelancers, entrepreneurs and Fortune 500s. The coworking company has six locations in the greater D.C. area, one in Philadelphia and three in Chicago — with plans to open even more in the near future. In 2016, MakeOffices hired the world-renowned design firm of Gensler to lead design efforts for two new locations in the nation’s capital — one of which was the company’s flagship location on Clarendon Street and the other situated along the “power corridor” on K Street. Gensler, which is an integrated architecture, design, planning, and consulting firm with offices across the globe, was tasked with helping MakeOffices transform both D.C. locations into hubs of creativity and collaboration.

    In both locations, Parterre’s Oak in Rain product from the Vertu Luxury Vinyl Plank collection was used. This flooring offered a repeatable and natural wood-look design with a lighter shade of gray that contrasted well with the darker design elements selected for each individual space. The K Street location showcases a custom-designed, dark plank, Midnight Oak, which is a classic oak design in a contemporary color. In the Clarendon location, they added dimension to the space with a sleek custom plank, Black.
