  • Year 2020
  • Location Bellevue, Washington, United States,
  • Industry Real Estate Services,
  • Unispace completed the new Compass offices as a space to reflect the realty company’s brand at their location Bellevue, Washington.

    Compass’ new Bellevue location supports the company’s rapid growth and their focus on client experience. Previously, Unispace collaborated with Compass to complete other offices, including their HQ2 in New York, and office in Burlingame, CA.

    From the start, the Compass team had their eyes set on the luxury shopping center, The Braven, for their new workplace. To achieve their vision, Unispace worked with the leadership team and landlord to convert six retail suites into a two-suite flexible space. Planning sessions helped to develop the flexible layout, aligning work matrices to how the brokers function at the request of their clients. Through due diligence, selected demolition, research and contingency, and coordinated planning, Unispace was able to navigate various construction challenges including retail/residential scheduling restrictions, while meeting Compass’ expectations.

    The Bellevue office, unlike their other workplaces, offers two styles of space with one side having traditional workstations and the other having working café and collaboration areas. These workstyle options allow broker teams to ebb and flow throughout space, and bring clients in for meetings and informal connecting. Having a flexible layout has also enabled Compass to bring staff back into the office during the Covid-19 pandemic while adhering to safe distancing restrictions. The client and staff are ecstatic with the space, and enjoy the flexibility it offers.
