Asurion | Regional Offices

Breaking Down The Traditional Office Concept

Born of modest origins, Asurion, a US-headquartered technology protection company, approached One Space to create an informal, down-to-earth environment for their new workplace. Teams that previously worked in different buildings would be coming together under one roof for the first time, so it was crucial to create ‘an office that didn’t feel like an office’.

We designed a large ‘Living Room’, dine-in ‘Kitchen’ and ‘Library’ that doubled as a boardroom and a ‘rough-and-ready’ Workshop. An exercise studio including showers, lockers and changing rooms, as well as a softly lit Mothers’ Room were incorporated. The building’s structural columns were exploited, forming ‘portals’ between neighbourhoods that embraced an open collaboration space. The small residual spaces between the columns and the curtain-wall formed transparent, sound-proofed Focus Rooms to accommodate privacy. All exposed concrete column surfaces were coated in writeable “IdeaPaint”.
