BOKA Powell designed Omnitracs' new corporate headquarters, relocated from San Diego to downtown Dallas. Housing over 500 employees, the sophisticated, modern workplace features coffee bars, huddle spaces and lounges.
"The space tells a powerful story of the company's journey, and celebrates its new location in downtown Dallas," commented Staci Tave, project manager and interior designer from BOKA Powell. "We sought to design a creative space that is sophisticated, timeless and supports collaboration."
When entering the space, visitors will immediately see a sculptural monumental stair connecting the 13th and 14th floors. Beyond, a weathered steel-clad reception desk sits in front of a layered, natural wood wall.
Floor-to-ceiling windows offer sweeping views of the Dallas skyline from one side of the office to the other. Open workstations line the windows and have a loft-style feel, with abundant natural light and open-structure ceilings. Directors occupy refined interior offices with transom windows that allow daylight to permeate the space.
Each level features a similar floor plan, creating continuity, with gathering spaces in the center and coffee bars that serve as touchdown spaces for staff. Open workstations, lounge spaces, huddle rooms and ubiquitous marker boards encourage teamwork.
The blue and orange color scheme is in keeping with the company's brand, creating a vibrant contrast to an overall neutral palette.
