Watch: Flexible Design Creates Collaborative Office Culture in Minneapolis

Looking for office inspiration? The American Society of Interior Designers (ASID )has released the fifth case study in its Impact of Design Series featuring an innovative office space that blends community and productivity.

StudioIDS, the self-designed home of Perkins+Will in Minneapolis, was recently recognized as one of the winners of the first-ever ASID Outcome of Design Awards, honoring its successful use of pre- and post-occupancy research to prove the power of design. As evidenced in the new case study, studioIDS serves its occupants by offering a uniquely flexible space reflective of modern work styles. Highlights from their new space design include:

  • 55 percent of materials were manufactured within 500 miles of the office

  • employees reported a 40 percent increase in their ability to concentrate and a 43 percent increase in their ability to collaborate

  • employees reported a 61 percent increase in sense of community and a 62 percent increase in sense of energy
