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
