  • Hickok Cole designed the latest offices for communications agency, Bully Pulpit Interactive, located in Washington DC.

    Bully Pulpit Interactive is a communications agency with four offices nationwide. Their new office in DC connects their staff across 33,000 SF of a historic building near Lafayette Square. The design amplifies the building’s historic architecture with exposed concrete, natural brick, high open ceilings, and warm wood finishes. The design’s use of exposed brick and concrete reflects the historic fabric of DC and speaks to the client’s mission to be part of history as they work on communications for high-profile political campaigns and enterprises alike. Colorful feature elements add contrast and a sense of playfulness to express the culture of the organization.

    Split across two floors, an interconnecting stair unifies employees for maximized engagement. Bully Pulpit’s entrance level incorporates a reception area, large café space, flexible multi-purpose room, and work-space. The upper level introduces additional teaming rooms, work-space, and an outdoor terrace. While site lines are open between work space and community areas, the use of innovative acoustic products, furniture solutions, and plenty of teaming rooms offer opportunities for collaboration and focus.

    Each floor has a multi-functional café space for employees to gather for all-hands meetings, have quick team discussions, or socialize. The strategic co-location of the reception area, café, and multi-purpose spaces offer a multitude of functions ensuring the spaces are activated throughout the day. This activity within the space allows visitors to witness the energy of the organization through visible employee interaction.
